I recently received my Adopt-a-Vaquita kit and it’s fantastic! I find myself always wearing the sweet dog tag, and the stickers decorate our car very nicely. The pre-written letter to the U.N. is very convincing. I learned some really cool things from the article, and the beautiful picture is adorning my wall at this very moment. The fact sheet is very informative, and the personalized certificate makes me feel good about myself. 🙂 Even though it is too late for the holidays, I still recommend purchasing this kit!
ATTENTION! Do you think you can write a good Vaquita poem? Let’s find out! I’m creating a Vaquita poetry contest for you! Write the best poem you can, and submit it in the comment section. If my fellow judges and I think your poem is really outstanding, I will use it as one of my future poems, giving you full credit. There can be multiple winners. The deadline is 12:00 am on January 10, 2012. I hope to read some great poems!

Great job PROFEPA!
