     Three young adult sea otters are spending the summer at the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward while they wait to be transferred to a permanent home in Europe.

     This is the first time the Center has had this many young otters at the same time.

     According to the SeaLife Center, MoJoe, Aurora, and Agnes were all rescued from Homer over the past four years.

     Because they were each stranded at younger than three months old, they have been deemed non-releasable by the US Fish and Wildlife Service.

     At the Center, the trio eats more than $2,400 worth of clam, squid, capelin, and shrimp each month.

     There is a daily Sea Otter Behind-The-Scenes Tour through the end of the summer that focuses on the rescue and rehabilitation of these marine animals.
