subjectSea Otter photo for CA State Park brochure

We would like to request permission to use one of your sea otter photos that we found on the Flickr website ( ). We are creating a new brochure for Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park that will be given to park visitors free of charge. One of the photos that we wish to show visitors depicts the otter. Your photo is the best by far and would work well in our educational brochure. Please contact me if you would be willing to allow us to use your image. Because we have limited funds for production we can only offer photo credit. We would need a signed release as well. I hope to hear from you!
