Stranded Sea Otter Pups Fly Home On Private Jet

Mara and Gibson, rescued otter pups, found a new home at Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia in the United States after being found stranded near the California coastline.

Both pups were rescued and later deemed non-releasable by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Georgia Aquarium was selected as Mara and Gibson's new home due to its ability to care for young pups who require round-the-clock care.

According to Aquarium if a permanent home had not been available for either of these pups, they would have been euthanised.

To get them back to Atlanta as quickly and with as little stress as possible, the animal care and veterinary staff flew them directly from Monterey, California to Atlanta on a private jet. With the otters’ health and wellbeing in mind, the jet was cooled to approximately 60-65 degrees Fahrenheit and supplied with plenty of ice to keep these cold-weather mammals cool.
