Review: Saving Otter 501

Heartbreaking Story of Struggle and Survival on Fantastic Nature Season Opener

Say good luck to 501 and goodbye to Toola.

The sea otters are the stars of tonight’s marvelous Nature program on PBS, Saving Otter 501 (PBS, 8pm).

Who hasn’t admired the nifty way they crack open abalones while floating on their backs? I wish I could eat oysters that way.

But how do they learn all the skills a successful sea otter must acquire to survive in California’s Monterey Bay, where most live?

Nature follows Karl Mayer and his team of marine biologists as they rescue a poor pup washed up on the shore.
