Please Observe Strict Ethics with Sea Otters

If you come across California sea otters and are lucky enough to watch or photograph them, please observe the most stringent cautions about not disturbing them. Human disruption causes significant problems for sea otters. Take the time to read these guidelines from a great organization — about respecting the space and needs of sea otters: Be Sea Otter Savvy

ETHICAL WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY: As a rule, my images are shot from a respectful distance with a telephoto lens. My aim is to minimize disturbance as much as possible, and put the well-being of the animal above the acquisition of any photo. You can read my full field ethics statement here.
