MONTEREY, California (CNN) -- Fur hunters in the 1800s nearly wiped out the southern sea otter population off the California cost. Today the species again struggles to survive, this time because of diseases unleashed by human activities.

To help the animals survive, researchers at the Monterey Bay Aquarium are raising orphaned otters, which will eventually be released back into the wild.
