This is the story of the Monterey Bay Aquarium's 501st attempt to save an orphan otter. From her discovery as a stranded newborn pup crying on the beach through her rehabilitation in secret roof tanks atop the Aquarium, we follow as Otter 501 learns how to dive, hunt, eat, and fend for herself in the wild, where survival is a long shot at best.

Certainly one of the best Nature episode

Comments about PBS NATURE: Saving Otter 501 DVD:

Of ever exhibit at the Monterey Aquarium, I loved most the Sea Otter exhibit...spent more than one hour just watching and fell in love! However, I knew nothing of the fragil nature of their existance and nothing in general about how totally dependent on their mothers they are...very sad to know that there are so few left and how threatened they are. I applaud all those who are involved in helping to save these most wonderful creatures who show us what true joy is all about...that is, the joy they bring to us.
Thank you for making this DVD available to the public.

A must for Otter lovers

Comments about PBS NATURE: Saving Otter 501 DVD:

If you love otters, Monterey Bay and Ocean conservation this DVD is wonderful. I enjoy the Nature series on PBS regularly but seldom buy DVDs . I was moved to buy this one as a gift for an otter lover. One of the best Nature shows I've seen.

Nature at its Best!

By Jet Girl

Comments about PBS NATURE: Saving Otter 501 DVD:

I gave it four stars because I would have liked to hear more about what they plan for the future and maybe how we as local citizens can do more to get involved with helping our animal neighbors. I would have given it a 4.9 if that was possible.
This was well written, with beautiful footage and just an amazing insight to what your money helps to preserve and maintain when you make a donation or visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It will inspire future marine and wildlife biologists. I had no idea the otters were so close to extinction or that the Monterey Bay is as polluted as it is. I would like to be able to do a bit more to bring attention to the need for conservation and safer practices especially in such a sensitive area for the wildlife.

I just had to buy the DVD!

Comments about PBS NATURE: Saving Otter 501 DVD:

'Saving Otter 501' was so fascinating that I had to buy the DVD to watch it again (and again). Learned so much about otters - their history, their endangered status, how important they are to the ocean's ecosystem. The incredible Monterey Bay Aquarium staff's loving care, the recovery and rehabilitation methods used, and long-term dedication to saving these orphaned otter babies (which would not survive otherwise) is really something to see, and learn about. Thank you, PBS, for bringing us this amazing program!
