Season 32, Episode 1 Saving Otter 501

First Aired: October 16, 2013

The Season 32 premiere spotlights the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Sea Otter Research and Conservation program, which strives to save injured and-or orphaned sea otters, through its work with a female pup.

In time, it's paired with a surrogate mom that teaches it the lessons baby otters must learn, including how to find food.
