Help Save the Critically Endangered Vaquita

We need YOUR help to save the world’s smallest, most endangered cetacean! The Gulf of California harbor porpoise (Phocoena sinus), or vaquita marina, meaning “little sea cow” in Spanish, is only found in the murky waters of the northern Gulf of California, where it is swimming on the edge of extinction with only 30-odd individuals left.

Over many decades, the porpoise has been getting accidentally and fatally entangled in, legal and illegal, fishing nets. The situation today is dire, so much so that an international team of experts known as the VaquitaCPR team is currently working with the Mexican government to capture a few of the last remaining individuals and transferring them to a protected sea-pen, where they will hopefully be able to reproduce.

You can help!
