If you didn't know, Sea Otter Awareness Week is September 22-28.

There's a new otter cam that offers a first of its kind look into otter behavior this year.

The new otter cam streams live video from the tidal salt marshes of Elkhorn Slough in Monterey County, which is just south of Santa Cruz.

Elkhorn Slough is home to the largest concentration of endangered southern sea otters on the West Coast.
