What is a vaquita?

Honoring an endangered species

 The vaquita is a species of porpoise that is on the brink of extinction. It only lives in one place in the world; here in the Sea of Cortez. 


· The Vaquita are the rarest sea mammal in existence, are also the smallest cetacean on earth and is a cousin of the largest animal in the world, the blue whale.


· Vaquitas are smaller than dolphins, a heavier body, a round head with no long nose like a dolphin. Their faces are look as though they are wearing makeup and some even call them pandas or the sea because of the dark coloring around their eyes and on their lips. 


· Vaquitas, belong to the cetacean family like their relatives dolphins and whales. They are also mammals, have live births, and need to come to the surface to breathe. They feast on fish, prawns and crabs, but prefer squid. And they also navigate and communicate using sonar.


· Although they tend to spend their time in the shallow water close to shore, they are so shy that you are very lucky if you spot one. 


· The biggest threat to the Vaquita comes from the illegal fishing for an exotic fish called totoaba. Gillnets are used to catch the totoaba, but this type of nets entangles the vaquita and they drown, unable to reach the surface.


· In 2015, the Mexican Government banned the use of the gillnets for two years and many conservation efforts are underway which will hopefully save these timid beauties before they are lost to history.


· Estimates suggest that vaquitas may become extinct by 2020.
