The wreck of the M/V Selendang Ayu near Skan Bay (west coast of Unalaska Island) and the resulting release of ca. 200,000 gallons of fuel oil placed an unknown number of sea otters at risk of oiling, debilitation, and death. As a result, the USFWS asked International Wildlife Research (IWR) to prepare a plan to capture, stabilize, and rehabilitate any otters that became oiled and debilitated.
