Like a web

Like a web,

the net

devoured my soul.

With invisible hands,

the net

gouged my body.

Like a whirlpool,

the net

sucked me in;

stabbing me with knives,

wrapping me up.

I rolled to escape

the net,

but it was no use.

The net

tightened,

suffocating me.

The net

stopped my heart.

Diet

The Vaquita eats a wide range of small fish and squid. All of the 17 fish species that have been found in Vaquita stomachs can be classified as Demersal and/or Benthic species living in relatively shallow water in the northern Gulf of California.

Mariachi Sol de Mexico

José Hernàndez (whom Diane Glim commented about on a previous post) from Mariachi Sol de Mexico, Save the Whales, and ¡Viva Vaquita! teamed up to do a public service announcement about the Vaquita being broadcasted on radio stations in the Monterey, California area.
