ISTVD is here.

Never heard of the vaquita? It's the world's rarest cetacean, a dubious title the creature won after the extinction of the baiji (a river dolphin of China) in 2006.

Vaquitas live in the Gulf of Mexico, and there are only an estimated 60 of them left. It was 300 not too long ago. They get caught in gillnets when people fish there. They eat a fish called the totoaba, which people also catch in gillnets.

I posted a petition on Facebook not too long ago, but no one who saw my wall post signed the petition. I encourage all of you to sign here in commemoration of this day:
