SEWARD- Two young sea otters are getting round-the-clock care at the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward.
The center says 3-month-old Agnes was found stranded as a newborn near Homer in April, while 4-month-old Nuka was brought in June 1 after being reported as abandoned on Kodiak Island.
The center, in a release, says the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service does not deem otters this age releasable back into the wild.
Husbandry director Brett Long says the center is beginning to transition the care the otters are receiving. Initially, the animals got hands-on intensive care but Long say it's important they learn to take care of themselves, even while staying under 24-hour-care.
Viewing windows at the center allow for visitors to watch the otters and their caregivers.
