New Vaquita short film!

In October I posted Chris Johnson’s new Vaquita short film. You can read that post here: The video was taken down for a little while, but was re-launched on December 8 at the Society for Marine Mammology Conference in Dunedin, New Zealand. You can read all about the extraordinary video, and of course watch it, on the Whale Trackers blog (also below): Please share!

Also, Argent Aqua Jewelry just came out with an update to this pendant: a Vermeil and diamond Vaquita. Quite a holiday gift, and $12.25 from each purchase goes to Vaquita conservation!

Please don’t forget to think about the Vaquita over the holidays. I know it is hard to worry about a porpoise while you are chowing down on a warm apple pie, but the little things really do make a huge difference. For example, you can Adopt-a-Vaquita for someone as a gift, or donate a few dollars from a Christmas card to ¡Viva Vaquita!. Maybe make a Vaquita-conscious holiday meal, buy a beautiful Vaquita item from ¡Viva Vaquita!’s gift store (with the new Memuco collection), or easiest of all, write a Facebook post or Tweet about everyone’s favorite critically endangered porpoise. And please, show us what you did! Leave a comment or shoot me an email at saying the wonderful things you came up with this holiday season!


As another present for my sister’s birthday, I bought her a Vaquita pendant from Argent Aqua Jewelry (a site recommended by ¡Viva Vaquita!). It was $60, but it was definitely worth it. It is beautiful, and “cast in silver, plated with Rhodium, a metal more precious than platinum, and set with natural sapphires for their eyes.” I bought the last one in stock, but there are countless other amazing pieces available, and hopefully they will make more Vaquitas soon. Some money from the sale even goes to the Vaquita! You can check out the Vaquita here, or the whole site by clicking the green words above. Here is the pendant:
