Fees: $10 each advance/$8 Aquarium members.  $15 day of event

A look at the extraordinary rescue of Rialto the sea otter, and how the Seattle Times teamed up with the Seattle Aquarium to tell a story of conservation and compassion as the Aquarium rehabilitated a stranded sea otter pup from Rialto Beach, nursed it back to health with 24/7 expert care, and moved the animal to its permanent home in Vancouver, B.C.

Learn about why the Seattle Times decided to “go big” on this story, the extraordinary partnership with the Aquarium, and the importance of working together to tell stories of compassion and conservation in what can be discouraging times—and the challenges facing such efforts in the future.
