About This Project
By the mid 20th century, North American river otters disappeared from the San Francisco Bay Area due to decreasing water quality from human settlement. With recent wetland restoration, we are now seeing these amazing and charismatic animals return to the bay's waters, but there is no current understanding of their populations. My project's goal is to identify these otter populations so we may understand how to assist the recovery of these important animals in the Bay Area.
