ATLANTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- There are two adorable new additions to the Georgia Aquarium sea otter family!
10-week-old Mara and 5-week-old Gibson were found all alone and stranded near the California coast in January, but now they've been welcomed into Atlanta with open arms.
According to a press release, both pups were rescued and later deemed non-releasable by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Georgia Aquarium was selected as Mara and Gibson’s new home due to its ability to care for young pups who require round-the-clock care.
These two fluffy babies are behind the scenes at the aquarium right now as they acclimate to their new home.
