VAQUITA

This small porpoise is one of the most endangered marine mammals, with fewer than 600 individuals left in Mexico's Gulf of California. Why they're in trouble: Already in decline because the damming of the Colorado River has destroyed parts of their habitat, Vaquitas are also threatened by the gill nets used to catch fish. They are often killed unintentionally as bycatch
