The OSPR Marine Wildlife Veterinary Care and Research Center (MWVCRC) was constructed in 1997 as the primary care facility for sea otters affected by oil spills or other marine pollution events. In addition to maintaining the facility and protocols for oil spill response, MWVCRC staff and collaborators conduct research on southern sea otters and other marine wildlife.
