Adopt Langly & Sprout, sea otter companions
Langly & Sprout's story
Southern sea otter pup Langly was orphaned when her mother received a fatal bite from a great white shark. Luckily, her mother was able to get Langly safely to shore, where The Marine Mammal Center’s trained responders were able to rescue her.
After about a month at our hospital, Langly was joined by another young sea otter. Sprout was rescued by the Monterey Bay Aquarium and treated for exposure to domoic acid. This toxin produced by harmful algal blooms can contaminate the shellfish that both otters and humans enjoy.
Langly and Sprout immediately formed a strong bond and spent much of their time at the Center swimming and playing together.
When Sprout first arrived at our hospital, she needed a name. Thanks to kind and creative people like you, she received more than 800 name suggestions and more than 4,500 votes to determine the winning name.
Sprout not only got her name, both she and Langly got a second chance at life. Show your support for sea otter patients like Langly and Sprout by adopting them together today.
