PROFEPA progress

According to vaquita.tv and www.vivavaquita.org, as part of the enforcement
activities from January-August 2012 PROFEPA reports:
– Surveillance: 559 boat
trips and 15 flights
– 135 written inspection reports
– Confiscated 20,390
kg in product, 243 fishing gears, 55 skiffs (pangas)
– 1 person arrested for
poaching (geoduck and totoaba swim bladder)

This is very great news for the Vaquita. Here’s my petition to the President of Mexico, PROFEPA, and SEMARNAT asking to continue with these efforts and some others. Every signature counts!
