What else have we been doing with all our spare time? Well, Dois and I have also been working on the Vaquita Project. What what? Yeah, we want to save a porpoise from extinction. I know, sounds lofty, but I'm a woman with a plan.
The Vaquita frequently die in illegal gill-nets set for the endangered totoaba fish, as well as in gill nets set for sharks, rays, mackerel and shrimp. The animal only needs to brush up against a net to become entangled and drown. The babies are especially susceptible to entanglement and researchers are very concerned that if there are few young ones to grow into reproductive adults that this will lead to a more rapid decline.
