Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: monitor the health of the sea otter's marine habitat or help track sea otters throughout the Monterey Peninsula.

Reviews government documents concerning the sea otter and its habitat; provides comment; solicits response from membership as needed.

Mission:
Friends of the Sea Otter is committed to and advocates for the conservation of sea otters, the preservation of their habitat, through education, research, and policy decisions that will ensure the long-term survival of this species.
Results:
After nearly 20 years of advocacy, the Fish and Wildlife Service is nearly ready to end the No-Otter Zone off the coast of Southern California - a coastal region into which sea otters are currently not allowed to swim.
