You might ask, “Why do I help the Vaquita?”
And my answer is, “Why wouldn’t I?”
I cannot force myself to think of a world without Vaquita.
They have helped shape much of my young life, from the early online research to now.
They have inspired me to do things I never thought were possible—or had the courage to do.
They have given me the confidence to stand up and make a difference in this dying world.
They have presented me with endless ideas for poems, books, and artwork.
They have saved me with the knowledge that I am saving them, and they still have a chance.
The Vaquita has given me so much, and now it is my turn to give back to them.
I know the day the Vaquita dies will make me want to do the same.
It is this fear of loss that has pushed me for years to make a change.
And you may ask, “Why save the Vaquita?”
And my answer will always be, “Why not?”
