THIS IS A VAQUITA.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ONLY 30 VAQUITAS ARE LEFT.

 

 

 

 

 

BUT EXTINCTION IS NOT AN OPTION.

 

VAQUITAS ONLY LIVE IN THE NORTHERN TIP OF THE GULF OF CALIFORNIA, IN MEXICO.

 

 

 

 

 

 

NOBODY IS TRYING TO HURT VAQUITAS.

 

BUT DEADLY GILLNETS ARE ILLEGALLY USED TO HUNT FOR SHRIMP AND AN ENDANGERED BASS CALLED THE TOTOABA in the vaquita's range.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

vaquitas are caught in these nets. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

totoaba swim bladders are used in traditional chinese medicine, driving demand and hurting both species.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

there is a solution.

 

gillnets have recently been permanently banned throughout the vaquita's range, but enforcement remains a challenge.

 

please sign our petition to encourage the incoming president of mexico to continue efforts to save the vaquita!
