    Sea Otter Savvy

    • Amy Medina Photography _Press and Publications (10)

      Sea Otters are one of my favorite little animals. I'm an advocate for their protection as they are an apex predator and most people don't know what an important role they play in our marine ecosystems and the health of kelp forests. I'm honored to be a photographic contributor for Sea Otter Savvy. This is an article about the effects of Sea Otters from the unhealthful air caused by California Wildfires
