The Vaquita (Phocoena Sinus)

Posted By Jenna Spackeen, Tuesday, June 03, 2008
The Vaquita is the smallest  and the most endangered cetacean in the world.  It is estimated that there are fewer than 600 living individuals.  It is endemic to the Northern Sea of Cortez.  The Vaquita faces an extreme risk of becoming extinct because of the high number of animals (40-80) that are entangled in fishing gear each year.  The Vaquita has also suffered due to severe ecological destruction as a result of the damming of the Colorado River.
