California extends vital fund for sea otters!

September 13, 2011

Earlier this month California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law AB 971 which extended the California Sea Otter Fund voluntary “check-off” option on state income tax forms.

The Fund has been an important financial source for researchers working at the California Department of Fish and Game and the California Coastal Conservancy who perform studies on the southern sea otter, a threatened species whose population is on the decline.

The law prolongs for another 5 years the option for Californian taxpayers to donate a portion of their tax return to the Fund. So far this year, California taxpayers have donated $331,028 to the Fund.

Thank you to all those who supported this bill!
