There are only 30 Vaquitas in the world… Now is time to save them! Join this campaign and, along with the AMHMAR, help us relocate these amazing mammals from the Gulf of Baja California and give them unique opportunities for reproduction and survival.

According to the latest estimate, in 2016, the Vaquita was only 30 specimens away from extinction. Due to illegal fishing and the irresponsible capture of Totoaba fish – also in danger of extinction – the Vaquita is condemned to disappear.

Collaboration between governments and international associations

Due to the emergency of the situation, the Mexican Government and the International Committee for the Recuperation of the Vaquita (CIRVA) have made a plan of action for preserving the specie. As part of this plan, the Vaquitas will be carried to a delimited place for them to reproduce and will later be reintroduced into their natural habitat.

Additionally, the United States Government will collaborate on this mission by sending trained dolphins to spot the Vaquitas, since they are a shy specie that comes to the surface for just a few seconds before going under the Cortes Sea again.

How can you help the Vaquita to survive?

If you, like the rest of us, want the Vaquita’s survival and existence in the Mexican oceans for thousands of years to come, you can join the donation campaign set up by the AMHMAR and enhanced by their members, especially Delphinus.
