I have no idea why I waited so long, but I finally changed my blog to https://vlogvaquita.com/. It won’t affect any previous links to https://goldenliontamarin.wordpress.com/, they will redirect to the new site. It’ll just make it easier to find my blog.
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)!

Members of CIRVA met again in February 2012 and reviewed progress of the Vaquita since the last meeting. The CIRVA recommendations are in this report:
