Can you guess how many otters are in this photo?
Sea otters are often found rafting together and it can make them difficult to count. This is similar to what a raft of otters would look like through a spotting scope when viewed from land. During the annual sea otter survey, we do our best to make accurate counts, including pups, by doing land and air based counts.
