This one is very special to me because I grew up in the are where it lives, in the Gulf of California. Such a beautiful creature and Unique. And such sadness that it has come to this point.
Three years ago I did a mural that was partially destroyed by some people who where being manipulated in to arguing that it did not exist.
Where the Vaquita lives is protected under federal law, and is off limits to trawlers and big commercial fshing boats. Still, there is  a lot of artesanal fishing happening in it’s area and they cannot see the nets. They get entangled and because they need to get air to live they drown.
