First, I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays.
Second, check this article about saving cetaceans from a different perspective.
And third, I was browsing through Google images when I found this really cool Vaquita painting. I clicked on it and I came upon this awesome website called Reuben is My Middle Name. The creator, Daniel Young, has this book, An A-Z of Weird and Wonderful Wildlife from Around the World, which has the Vaquita as V! His illustrations have an Eric Carle feel with tons of mystery and the feeling that you are inside the painting. I love his work.
I have been meaning to post pictures of all of the Vaquita projects/drawings my siblings and I have done in the past year, so look out for those soon!
Check out this site and read this article by Chris Johnson, the videographer of the “Vaquita: Last Chance for the Desert Porpoise” movie.
There are links to a plethora of awesome Vaquita articles about halfway down the ¡VivaVaquita! homepage, http://www.vivavaquita.org/, labeled Vaquita Updates & Publications. Instead of posting them individually, I thought I might as well just show you the source.
Read this article about the transformation from fishing to ecotourism in the Gulf. It is a very good idea that could save the Vaquita.
I know it is a little late, but I would like to show you a post that a cool guy named Brett Fish wrote about me in December called “The Little Cow That Could.” His article is extremely important to me. He is a very inspiring writer, and I insist you check out the rest of his blog as well.
Check out this report of findings from the Vaquita Workshop at the Biennial Conference on the Biology of Marine Mammals in Tampa, Florida held in November 2011.
A very well-written article completely about the Vaquita can be found in the new issue of Audubon Magazine! It is called “Safety Net”. Please purchase the magazine at a local bookstore, or check it out at http://www.audubonmagazine.org/articles/conservation/safety-net-0. This article is extremely vital to the Vaquita.
