Sea otters have chance to expand range: U.S. Fish and Wildlife proposes lifting Southern California ban

A 24-year ban on threatened sea otters in the waters off Southern California could soon be lifted. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposal, announced Wednesday, also would end a program that moved 140 otters from the Central Coast to San Nicolas Island about 75 miles southwest of Los Angeles between 1987 and 1990. A hearing on the proposal will be held Oct. 6 in Santa Cruz.

Strange that they were banned from populating Southern California coastline areas and yet had threatened species status.
Not surprising that the ban did not work, it is hard to get otters to follow the rules (typically bad parenting).

The cure for a fallacious argument is a better argument, not the suppression of ideas.
