The smallest porpoise in the ocean is facing the biggest chance of extinction. With fewer than 100 remaining, the vaquita, a tiny porpoise found only off the coast of Mexico, is the most endangered marine mammal in the world.
The few remaining vaquitas need your help, now!
Imagine losing this species, entirely. The tiny vaquita seems to always be seen smiling, but those smiles are depleting. This swift decline of the population is a direct result of fishing nets. These vaquitas are getting caught in nets, and dying completely preventable deaths.
The Mexican government is set to decide the fate of the vaquita this September. Be a big voice for the smallest porpoise in the ocean! Tell the US government to work with Mexico to ban the gillnets that threaten the future of the vaquita. If we don’t speak up now, the vaquita species could vanish completely this decade.
Help keep the smiling vaquitas roaming the ocean, today!
