Estimated to be only one week old and weighing in at just over 2 pounds, the female pup was found on September 30, 2014 on Coastways Beach in California.

A citizen on an evening walk heard the newborn otter's cry and quickly notified The Marine Mammal Center (TMMC). TMMC staff contacted Monterey Bay Aquarium's Sea Otter Program and scientists determined the pup could not be retrieved that evening due to the remote location and impending darkness.
