  • Sea Otters in Ucluelet

    Sea-Otters---Brian-Congdon

    Over 100 sea otters were seen rafting in the spring of 2011 in the bay at Little Beach in Ucluelet. Sea Otters are protected under the Species at Risk Act and have not been seen in such large numbers in the area for over 80 years. They were hunted to the point of extinction for their coats - the last one was recorded shot in 1929. The population started to increase, very slowly, in the 1970s. Local wildlife experts say they have only seen a handful of sea otters in the area in the last 20 years. Never before has a raft of this size been spotted.

    Both male and female sea otters were identified. A local marine biologist said this was rare and means they are about to start a mating cycle. She predicts that in three years, sea otters will be "everywhere". The Wild Pacific Trail is a great vantage point to watch these playful creatures. We are so happy to have them here once again!
