This morning, some sad news; Nyac, a sea otter that lived at the Vancouver Aquarium following her rescue from the Exxon-Valdez oil spill, has died. She was around 20 years old, and had been diagnosed with leukemia, which is unusual in sea otters. It may have been connected to the oil spill, even.

Here is a sweet video of Nyac “holding paws” with her partner and friend, Milo.

    So sad 🙁 we came over to Whistler in 2003 and took a day trip to Vancouver. I have pics of those little cuties swimming around together.
