Mex­ico’s mis­sion to save the vaquita

The Week - Junior - - Around The World -

It’s be­lieved there are just 30 vaquitas – the small­est por­poise in the world – left in the wild. In a bid to save the species, an or­gan­i­sa­tion cap­tures and trans­ports them to a spe­cial marine re­serve to stop them from get­ting caught in il­le­gal fish­ing nets. The Mex­i­can gov­ern­ment has com­mit­ted more than £76 mil­lion to the cam­paign to save the vaquita.
