This VAQUITA RESILIENCE print supports the idea of protecting and preserving our wildlife as a vital and very important matter. This conservation effort is essential future generations so they can still enjoy biodiversity on planet earth.
Any print we sell, will help planting trees across the world via our JUST ONE tree project.
A fossil fuel free world is one of the keys to reduce considerably the effect of Global Warming which has been affecting our climate. Trees can help as they absorb the carbon emitted by greenhouse gases which comes from human activity.
The endangered vaquita porpoises are only found in small numbers in Mexico’s Gulf of California and have managed to survive in their habitat despite many odds, as per a recent report of a research expedition.
Experts suggest that between 10 to 13 of the shy and elusive porpoises were sighted during nearly two weeks of sailing in the gulf last month, with some probable sightings through powerful binoculars.
A conservation expert from Sea Shepherd reported sighting at least one, and possibly two, young vaquita calves. This has considerably raised hopes for the survival of the world’s most endangered marine mammal.
MORE TO DO
Having said that, illegal gillnets have trapped and killed vaquitas for decades. Fortunately, people have made efforts towards stopping it by sinking concrete blocks with hooks and creating gillnet-free habitats. This is very encouraging but there is still the need for urgent conservation efforts to save these tiny porpoises from extinction. (Source: Euronews)

“I firmly believe that we must protect biodiversity as it is of utmost importance. I want my daughter to experience tigers or polar bears as wild animals roaming on the planet or vaquitas in seas and oceans and not in zoos only or in books.”
