There are only 97 endangered vaquita porpoises left in the Gulf of California, Mexico and they need protecting from being caught as by-catch in local gill nets and from illegal Chinese fishing. This shy timid porpoise was only discovered in 1958.

Noted and signed Thanks for sharing Victoria This is truly sad that there are so few left if they would ban the gill nets and monitor them closely they could have a chance. But with no precautions in place and no new laws implemented on the gill fishing their fate is unknown.
