Recently, I was contacted by William Whittenbury, a member of the Muskwa Club (see Blogroll), a group that is currently working on saving the Vaquita. They are doing an amazing job, from presentations to videos to books to floats, they are really taking an immense step for public awareness. You can read more about what they are or plan on doing in William’s comment on About V-log. William has been very kind to me, inviting me to join the club, help write their video series’ screenplay, and is even willing to sell and display my informational Vaquita book at their presentations. William’s mom actually gave me a website that I can use to self-publish it! Dr. Tom Jefferson has already generously proofread it for fact authenticity and given permission to use one of his photos for the book. My brother and I are finishing up our illustrations for the book, and the whole thing is really starting to look like it could be a real success! I will give you further updates as they come.
Please watch this short film about the Vaquita! No matter how much one can write, seeing the situation will always be more effective.
Here is the poster for Jimmy Maldonado’s Mexican short film, “Por Naturaleza” (“Naturally” in English). It appears to be about the Vaquita. I will try to learn more about it.
I recommend everyone should take 5 minutes to download the “Vaquita: Last Chance for the Desert Porpoise” movie on iTunes for free! Also found on vaquita.tv (Blogroll), it is an extremely informative movie about the Vaquita, filmed and narrated by Chris Johnson.
