Information from Otter Project & USGS

Scientists observed 2,813 sea otters along the Central Coast in 2009. 430 otters died and 328 pups were born. If there is no immigration or emigration, how many sea otters were there in 2010?

2,711+2-10=2,703

If 10 sea otters leave the Central Coast population and 2 enter, what would the 2010 population be?
