What did you miss? FSO Member Meeting Overview

Were you unable to attend the member meeting last June and are curious to learn what we spoke about and shared with those who attended?  Then you will be pleased to see what we presented to those who were able to join us at Heritage Harbor last month. All in all, it was a great meeting, with a small but energetic group of members, who asked questions about our various programs, from the water monitoring project which involves a handful of FSO volunteers to our Yampah Island project which will monitor sea otter behavior in the Elkhorn Slough to our legislative pushes to terminate the no-sea otter zone, the remnants of a 1988 decision to create a secondary sea otter population that would prevent extinction if an oil spill were to occur in the natural sea otter range off the coast.  For further information, please view details in our presentation or on our website.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us at info@seaotters.org.
