There are links to a plethora of awesome Vaquita articles about halfway down the ¡Viva Vaquita! homepage, http://www.vivavaquita.org/, labeled Vaquita Updates & Publications. Instead of posting them individually, I thought I might as well just show you the source.
Thanks to everyone who has signed my petition on Change.org, but if you haven’t yet, you can at http://www.change.org/petitions/save-the-elusive-vaquita. If you have a Change.org account, you can just sign it, but don’t worry if you don’t: you can simply just fill in your name and some other information, and voilà. While you’re at it, it would be greatly appreciated if you also signed the ¡Viva Vaquita! and Save the Whales petitions.
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.
Check out ¡Viva Vaquita! and the Oceanographic Environmental Research Society’s new coloring/activity book, Anita the Vaquita! It is obviously not directed towards the older audience, but it is great for little kids! It mixes fun activities and coloring with accurate yet simple information. Even though you’re probably an adult, I recommend at least looking at it and giving it to a kid you know. If you are serious about getting an actual copy, comment with your email address and we’ll work from there. Thanks!
José Hernàndez (whom Diane Glim commented about on a previous post) from Mariachi Sol de Mexico, Save the Whales, and ¡Viva Vaquita! teamed up to do a public service announcement about the Vaquita being broadcasted on radio stations in the Monterey, California area. You can listen to it here: http://www.savethewhales.org/vaquita_psa.html.
