Endangered Species Week Feature Video: Vaquita
In the pristine waters of Mexico’s Upper Gulf of California, the most endangered marine mammal in the world faces extinction amid rampant illegal fishing and deadly gillnets.
There are less than 20 vaquitas left alive.
It is not too late to save the vaquita, but we need your help. This year, on Endangered Species Day, join the fight to save a species and help Sea Shepherd continue to remove the illegal nets that threaten the survival of this mysterious and beautiful animal.
