Long Beach aquarium needs your help naming rescued sea otter

Long Beach’s Aquarium of the Pacific has taken in a sea otter pup found abandoned in Carmel-by-the-Sea in April and is asking the public for help with naming it.

Through the aquarium’s Adopt-an-Animal program, people can virtually adopt the pup for $100 through September 30, or pay more to propose a name. If the name is chosen, the proposer will be invited to a training and feeding session with one of the animals in the aquarium.

The sea otter was found without its mother on April 12 and estimated to be 3 weeks old by experts, according to a press release. The pup was taken to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, where staff tried to set him up with a surrogate but to no avail.

The US Fish and Wildlife Service deemed the sea otter non-releasable to the wild.

The pup arrived at the Aquarium of the Pacific and was placed in a pool backstage with an adult sea otter named Chloe, according to the aquarium.

“Chloe and the pup get along well and have formed a strong bond,” said Brett Long, curator of mammals and birds at the Aquarium of the Pacific.

The pup is 4 months old and is in the aquarium’s sea otter habitat, which he shares with four other rescued sea otters who have been transported there since December. The new puppy has “a little lighter fur on his face.”
