Today I discovered the Vaquita (Phocoena sinus), and I am absolutely captivated by them and their plight!
These small porpoises are critically endangered. Found along the Gulf of California, the Vaquita is at risk from fishing bycatch, often caught up in gillnets, environmental pollution, habitat degradation, and inbreeding.
Their numbers currently resides somewhere below 200, and their population decreases by as much as 15% each year! Within the next 30 years, they could decrease by 80%.
To help the Vaquita, spread the word and support efforts to improve fishing gear! Be careful of where you buy your seafood, and be sure it is MSC certified!
Check out this website for more information on the Vaquita!
