Essential Sea Otter Booklist - Guardian

Miriam Darlington,
Otter Country: In Search of the Wild Otter
Warming up to Sea Otter Awareness Week, which is just around the corner (23rd-29th Sept), Miriam Darlington, author of Otter Country: In Search of the Wild Otter, compiled a list of her top 10 literary otters. From children's book, scientific accounts and poems, this collection sure has a little bit for everyone's tastes, and they are all about these cute sea critters.
The sea otter is a rapidly declining species. Its decline is worrying as the species has a critical role in balance of the marine ecosystem and  in the fight against global warming.
