Welcome Back Charlie! | Hugh  buttonLink

Welcome Back Charlie!

The critter that pushed the envelope in otter behavior is back in Long Beach.

Charlie the Sea Otter is famous amongst zoological institutions. He was the first sea otter trained to give a voluntary blood sample. For the past couple of years Charlie was up north in a famous research facility participating in an important research project on sea otter hearing.  Now that that research is concluded he has returned to his home town of Long Beach.
