Fact: There’s more vaquita in this photo than there are in our oceans. It’s #savethevaquita day so we are releasing only 30 vaquita pins to our store in honor of this critically endangered species. There are estimated to be FEWER than 30 vaquita left in the Gulf of California. The worlds most endangered marine mammal, the vaquita. Available at FinPinShop.com 💙 (Wondering about this newspaper? We are a plastic-free business, that means no plastic involved in our shipping process!)
What is killing them? Gillnets set for sharks, rays, mackerels and chano, as well as in illegal and occasionally permitted gillnet sets for an endangered fish, the totoaba. They are also killed by commercial shrimp trawlers.
