I have been thinking about this for a very long time now. My idea is the Vaquita Conservation Society, or VCS. After all of the craziness of the book and National Save the Vaquita Day is over, I am going to start a new organization. The goal of the organization will be to educate the public about the Vaquita and hopefully serve as the first charity directly sending money to the switch-out program. I plan on working closely with the Muskwa Club and possibly the American Cetacean Society to create a new website with a similar look to these awesome pages: Manta Trust and Polar Bears International. Some of the pages will include: About the Vaquita, How to Help, Our Mission, Our Projects, and a News Page. It will closely follow all of the action of the Muskwa Club and everyone that will be associated with the VCS, and go hand in hand with V-log (which will continue as normal). More updates to come. I even have the logo created:
Friday, May 17 was Endangered Species Day 2013. As a donation to our beautiful world, please buy a Vaquita t-shirt at https://campaign.customink.com/savethevaquita.
To my delight, my campaign is currently featured in the “Trending Campaigns” section of Custom Ink’s home page, https://campaign.customink.com! Help keep it there by purchasing one for only around $25! They also make a great gift. 25% of profits will go to ¡Viva Vaquita!, and the rest will go towards the printing of my book. The book will be featured in at least two aquariums’ gift shops and will be at many tables for National Save the Vaquita Day! Look for further updates on all of these things in the future.
