Plush Vaquitas

I love these plush Vaquitas that I received from the ¡Viva Vaquita! team! They are each hand-sewn, and no one is quite like another. I got a mother and calf set, with the baby fitting in a pouch in the mom’s belly! (See picture.) Unfortunately, there are no more available, at least at the moment, but it is still an example that this cute little porpoise still has a chance.

She was beautiful

Sun made its way

to her back,

Casting a morphing shadow

on the powdery sand.

Bubbles slipped out of her lungs,

dancing to the swirling surface.

She rose up

toward the beckoning sun.

Her blowhole inhaled

the salty air,

Refilling her lungs

like a balloon.

She noticed a ship

in the distance.

Binoculars and cameras faced her,

flashing.

She floated in glory,

admired by the many people.

She was beautiful.
