The World’s Smallest Marine Mammal Faces Extinction

The World’s Smallest Marine Mammal Faces Extinction The vaquita is the smallest cetacean (whale, dolphin, or porpoise) on the planet. Found only in the northern part of the Gulf of California, Mexico, the vaquita porpoise is the world’s most endangered marine mammal. Only about sixty vaquitas remain, according to a report by the International Committee for the Recovery of the Vaquita (CIRVA) that was presented recently to Mexico’s Minister of the Environment and Natural Resources and the governor of Baja California. This represents a decline of more than 92 percent since 1997. Unless Mexico extends the gillnet ban enacted in 2015 and enforces regulations to stop illegal fishing, the vaquita will be driven to extinction within five years, according to CIRVA.
