Was it too late to save the southern sea otter? Thousands of these furry sea creatures once lived off the coast of California. Yet by the 1970s, years of hunting, water pollution, and boating accidents had pushed the sea otter to the brink of extinction. Would people find a way to help this endangered animal survive? In Southern Sea Otters: Fur-tastrophe Avoided, children relive the inspiring and heroic efforts of people who stepped in to save this remarkable creature when all seemed lost. Through this true tale of wildlife survival, children discover the bold and creative ideas that Americans and their government have used to protect and care for the country's endangered wildlife. Full-color photographs and a habitat map enrich this heartfelt story of conservationism and courage.
