It’s official: Gray whale season has started and we are well into having consistent sightings! Our first sighting this season was on November 28, and since then our trips have been full of activity. The gray whales spend half of the year feeding in the nutrient-rich waters off of Alaska in the Bering Sea in order to intake a large amount of calories to make their incredible migration south.

As a holiday treat for our otter fans I’d like to share a video of the sea otters enjoying their snowman and treats during this month’s Holiday Treats for the Animals festivities.

An Annual Tradition Continued
During the annual Holiday Treats for the Animals festival it has become a tradition for me to build the first snowman of the season for the sea otters in their exhibit. I will be sharing some images and annecdotes on this year’s creation.
