Here at Ocean Helper we have been following the plight of the vaquita.
We have seen their numbers dwindle from 20 to 16 to 12 to 10.
Save the Vaquita Day
Today, July 18th, is Save the Vaquita Day, with the goal of directing the world's attention to the critically endangered vaquita. It is estimated that there are less than 20 left in the wild, potentially less than 10, and their numbers will continue to drop unless action is taken.
