Recently I have started another Vaquita book, this time a fictional adult novel. It is called Nets, and is about both a pod of Vaquita and a local fisherman. I am also still working on my informational children’s book, Vaquita. My brother and I are both painting Vaquita pictures to either sell or use for publicity. I will start to post some more artwork that my siblings or I have made in the past. I will post some progress reports in the future.
Vote for Guillermo Munro Colosio (a.k.a. Memuco, see work below) in the Artists Wanted competition. If he wins, he will donate all of the money to the Vaquita! Click here and click the “Collect Me” icon on the top of the screen. Please choose Guillermo (Memuco)!
The Vaquita is one of the top 100 EDGE species, meaning “Evolutionarily Distinct, Globally Endangered.” Evolutionarily distinct animals have no close relatives and represent proportionally more of the tree of life than other species, meaning they are top priority for conservation campaigns. As of September 21, 2011, $32.6 million had been invested for the Vaquita. But that’s not enough. Please donate here.
If the Vaquita continues to decline at the same rate as it has been, it will be extinct in 2 YEARS! We need to do something about it now, and YOU could be the one to donate the last dollar needed to set the buy-out in full swing! Check out the Blogroll to donate.
Rocky Point’s fleet headed out on Oct. 11 for the first time in 15 years to a section of the Alto Golfo and Rio Colorado Delta Biosphere: http://bit.ly/tqkNxQ. This is very bad news. We need more money!!
