“We must hold to the irreplaceables, to the species delicately interbalanced, to the endangered and threatened animals, to the sanctity of life here on our shores…”

-Margaret Owings, Founder

Friends of the Sea Otter invites you to enjoy a night under the stars and above the ocean at “An Evening at Wild Bird”, in Big Sur on Saturday, September 26th. This event is held in the historic Wild Bird home along the Golden Coast, which at one time belonged to Friends of the Sea Otter’s founder, Margaret Owings.

It is at this serene location, where Margaret Owings decided to take a stand for a critically endangered keystone species, and it is only fitting that the organization hold this event here, at a time when sea otters need us most.
