Sea Otter Rescue

Wildlife Rescue

By Suzi Eszterhas

From 7 to 10 | 44 pages

Sea Otter Rescue is the third in the four-book Wildlife Rescue series. Each book introduces a species of animal in danger somewhere in the world and profiles a rescue center that helps it. Stunning photos by award-winning wildlife photographer Suzi Eszterhas give readers a rare view of these endearing creatures and the high level of care they receive.

Sea Otter Rescue invites readers inside the Alaska SeaLife Center on the shores of Resurrection Bay in the town of Seward, Alaska. It explores how sea otters become orphaned or hurt and the process of healing and rehabilitating them. It also highlights the people who work at the clinic and how they aid the animals.

Other special features include a map showing the sea otter’s native habitat range and an index, a glossary, sources, and an author Q&A based on common questions from kids. An author’s note introduces readers to small-scale ways in which even they can help with sea otter conservation.

A portion of the royalties from this book will be donated to the Alaska SeaLife Center.
