Sea otters are the definition of cute to many people, but they are also an apex species in several ecosystems. They once were almost extinct, but populations have rebounded in recent decades. They still face many dangers from pollution, sharks and some fishermen would rather they be exterminated. On this episode of Inquiry, we talk with science and environmental writer TODD MCLEISH about his new book RETURN OF THE SEA OTTER: THE STORY OF THE ANIMAL THAT EVADED EXTINCTION ON THE PACIFIC COAST.
