Sea otters affect the whole ecosystem

It’s Sea Otter Awareness Week so here’s one last photo to celebrate these incredibly cute creatures.  Fun Fact:  Sea otters are a “keystone” species because they have such a huge effect on keeping the ecosystem healthy.  Sea otters keep the sea urchin population down which allows more sea kelp and grasses, allowing many other species to thrive!
