Exploring the Sensory Biology of Sea Otters Through Cooperative Research
In an effort to learn more about what types of sounds sea otters can hear when they are diving underwater, behavioral scientists from UC Santa Cruz’s Cognition & Sensory Systems Lab trained a sea otter named Charlie to participate in an underwater hearing test – one of the first ever to be conducted with a southern sea otter. This amazing, year-long research program was made possible by the dedicated efforts of staff at UCSC, Aquarium of the Pacific, and Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Sea Otter Research and Conservation (SORAC) program.
