Otter Cam FAQs

If you still have questions, please email

I can’t see the Otter Cam on my iPad or mobile phone.
Currently, our Otter Cam is running through a Flash Player that is not compatible with iPads and mobile devices. We are working on getting that feature up and running for you in the near future.

All I see is water. Where are the otters?
The otters may be elsewhere in the slough.  They are most active during high tide, so you should check back later and often. Click here to see when the next high tide will occur.

Who is controlling the Otter Cam?
The Otter Cam is controlled by researchers, staff and volunteers from our three partner organizations. When the camera is not being monitored by humans, it is set to move automatically to 3 popular preset locations.

Where is this location and can I visit in person?
For the protection of these animals, we are not disclosing the location of the camera, but we will say that it does reside within a protected area that does not permit kayaks or other visitors.
