After a year of writing, illustrating, and stressing out, my informational book, “The Vaquita: The Biology of an Endangered Porpoise,” is finally available! The book costs $12.95, with 100% of profits going to Vaquita research, education, and conservation (25% goes directly to ¡Viva Vaquita!). The book was written by me, illustrated by my brother, sister, and me, edited by Vaquita expert Dr. Thomas A. Jefferson (who also provided the back cover image), and the beautiful cover you can see below was by amazing artist Memuco. You can buy it here: https://www.createspace.com/4268018, and please distribute this link via social media. Buying one or more is a great way to donate while receiving the first ever Vaquita book! It will also be available on Amazon and Amazon Europe within the next week. Thank you so much for supporting me and more importantly, the Vaquita.
In recognition of the extremely critical situation of the Vaquita, CEDO is directing most of its 2012 fundraising efforts to the protection of this critically endangered species. Any purchases in the coming year will support local fishermen’s and CEDO’s cooperative efforts at reducing by-catch in the Northern Gulf, in strengthening public and social policies and practices to protect the Vaquita’s habitat, and in educating the public on this little porpoise. New research on the Vaquita will be published onto CEDO’s website soon: http://myemail.constantcontact.com/Happy-Holidays-from-CEDO.html?soid=1103804400006&aid=0kt8vw91kEA
