Found in Mexico’s Gulf of California, the vaquita is the most endangered marine mammal in the world, with an estimation of less than 30 remaining. It’s Winter’s Hope that the vaquita will survive and remain in our oceans forever.
We must strive for plans to be put in place in order to conserve this species, including the enforcement of the gillnet ban and illegal fishing practices in the Gulf of California.
Thank you to all of those who previously signed our petition. It is now closed.
