WWF-Russia gives an opportunity to adopt a sea otter
Since 2004, scientists report a steady decline in sea otters population in the North Kurils. A survey conducted in 2017 showed a more than 70% decline in the number of endangered species comparing to the survey of 2003 when the highest number of sea otters in the Northern islands of the Kuril range was reported.
Earlier this year, WWF-Russia and Kinder® launched a joint project aimed at preserving rare marine mammals of the Pacific Ocean, including sea otters. And now, WWF-Russia's supporters have a chance to join this conservation work. A symbolic adoption became possible for Russian donors.
