Where is the camera?
Elkhorn Slough harbors the largest tract of tidal salt marsh in California outside of the San Francisco Bay. It’s also home to the largest concentration of southern sea otters along the California coast. The slough and wetlands, adjacent to the Monterey Bay, provide critical habitat for hundreds of species, including sea otters, sea lions, harbor seals, great egrets and brown pelicans. At the mouth of the Elkhorn Slough sits the Moss Landing Harbor, which is where our camera is located. It’s a one of a kind spot where otters love to hang out together to play, groom, eat, and nap every day of the year. That’s right — 365 days a year of otter raft antics awesomeness! All of this otterly adorable action takes place directly in front of our camera.
