Just 200 left - maybe!

Check this out.

This is happening 200 miles from San Diego.
As always in real conservation, the situation is complex and riddled with setbacks: no instant gratification here, no fashionable posters, certainly no Oscars - just a lot of tedious, dogged and often frustrating work with little to show for in the short term.
But it is critically important - and you can help!

There are just between 150 and 200 Vaquitas remaining.
It is the World's rarest and most endangered Cetacean, to the point where it may well go extinct during this decade.

Japanese Dolphins are not endangered - and Taji is 8,000 miles away.
Just wanted to put things into perspective.
