How to Help

UPDATE! The gillnet ban has been made permanent!:

So how can you help? Some of the best ways for anyone to help are spreading the word on social media and in person, only eating sustainable seafood (no gillnet-caught seafood from the Gulf of California, and especially no totoaba swim bladders), signing petitions to the Mexican and U.S. governments, and donating to vaquita conservation organizations. Below are links to everything you need in order to make a difference for the vaquita.

  1. Thanks for the update!
    Profits from my children’s book, ‘Vinny the Vaquita’, also go to vaquita charities, and it’s a great way to help spread awareness. Aidan even kindly wrote a review for the back of the book. You can find it on or on amazon.
