for Sea Otter Rescue by Suzi Eszterhas
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.
