Defenders of Wildlife: Sea Otters

March 31, 2010 -- From Jim, a reader, from Monterey Bay, California, who is affiliated with the site.

This is a very thorough and well organized site for finding out about what Defenders of Wildlife is doing in the area of sea otter conservation and education. In addition, the site has good information on sea otter natural history, sea otter status, sea otter threats, etc.


August 30, 2006 -- From Madmax, age 12, from Australia, who is not affiliated with the site.

This is a great site! It shows so much!

Alaska Wildlife Notebook Series

January 7, 2000 -- From Deb D., a parent from New England, USA who is not affiliated with the site

My son and I discovered this site while homeschooling last year, and even though he’s back in public school this year, I held onto the link. Alaska’s Fish and Game Department does a wonderful job of providing descriptions and sketches of native wildlife, much of which is native to other regions of the U.S. Anytime one of my children needs to look up something on a wild animal, we hit this site first.

NOAA Townsend Cromwell Student Connections

August 24, 1999 -- From a parent from Honolulu, Hawaii who is affiliated with the site

Excellent site for students of all ages interested in how scientists are working to protect and save Hawaii’s environment and endangered species. The site interactively tracks research cruises on monk seals, albatross, lobsters, oceanography, and fisheries. Students can send questions directly to the ship and recieve answers from an officer aboard the ship. The site updates twice a week with writeups and photos of operations. This is a great site for anyone interested in “hands on” field research on endangered animals and Hawaii’s unique environment.
