Sadly, most baby sea otters in these situations require special care and thus will likely never see their parent again. Thankfully though, this one still had a chance.
"As the pup had no wounds, seemed bright and alert, and did not appear to be stressed, she was assessed to be healthy and active enough to attempt a reunion," TMMC spokesperson Lucy-Claire Saunders told The Dodo.
But how do you find a lost pup's mom among so many other sea otters? Apparently, all you have to do is ask.
