Take action to save the vaquita!

This petition had 44,036 supporters

Together, we can protect the Gulf of California World Heritage site, home to the critically endangered vaquita.

Recently, the President of Mexico committed to enforcing a permanent ban on gillnets in the Upper Gulf of California—the single biggest contributing factor to the vaquita's decline. The gillnet ban was one of our top campaign asks and thanks in part to 200,000 WWF Activists from around the world, vaquita may now have a fighting chance.

Joining the President of Mexico and signing on to an agreement to help support emergency measures to conserve the critically endangered vaquita and the Upper Gulf of California ecosystem were the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and the Carlos Slim Foundation. The agreement is a major step forward in the effort to save the vaquita population from extinction.

Now, we must urge the development of a comprehensive vaquita recovery plan. Take Action Today. Send a message to the President of Mexico now.
