0800037 - The Warm Coat - 1968 - 14:00 - Black&White - Follow the adventures of "Harvey," the wily otter, as he and other sea otters are relocated from Amchitka Island, Alaska, to other Alaskan sites with no otter colonies. This video shows the planning and execution of "Project Sea Otter Transplant." No nuclear explosions are shown in this video.

Several state and federal entities combined efforts to help repopulate the otters at new sites in Alaska. The State of Alaska, along with the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) and the U.S. Department of the Interior, worked on this project. In summer 1968, an Alaska Department of Fish and Game biologist supervised Aleut fisherman who captured about 50 otters each week; took them to a shore installation; and safely fed and cleaned the otters until transported to their new homes. Seven sea-otter transplants were performed using AECs C-130 cargo aircraft. In all, 359 sea otters were transported to new homes off the Alaskan coast.
