After a very successful campaign earlier this year, Sea Shepherd’s Operation Milagro is back!
Operation Milagro II will start shortly and attempt to keep Sea Shepherd’s momentum going from the first Operation Milagro, where they captured the first Vaquita footage since 2013, patrolled the waters for illegal fishing, and formed a promising partnership with the Mexican government.
“During [Milagro II], which will span until April 2016, Sea Shepherd will partner with the government of Mexico to protect the waters of the Vaquita refuge, patrol for poachers, document issues facing the endangered cetacean, collect data in order to collaborate and to share with the scientific community, and conduct outreach in the region, meeting with marine biologists, researchers and other NGOs working locally to save the Vaquita.”
In addition to the episode in my previous post, here are some other great podcasts about the Vaquita:
Eyes on Conservation (Episodes 26, 28, 30, 42, 43, & 44)
Speak Up For Blue (Episodes 14, 38, & 40)
