Save the vaquita, a small porpoise from the Gulf of Mexico.

Map of the Gulf of California

Important Conservation Message from Tom Mangelsen:

Ever heard of the vaquita, a small porpoise in the Gulf of California? With less than 30 remaining, they will likely soon become extinct unless illegal gill netting is stopped. Visit to see what you can do to help.

On Saturday, February 17, supporters will take part in a procession in honor of the vaquita. A silent and solemn ceremony of respect for the natural world will depart from the Tamayo Museum at 10:00 am and end at the National Museum of Anthropology. The procession’s highlight will be a “performance” conceived by Mexican artist and conservationist Patricio Robles Gil. He has created an evocative sculpture that is the centerpiece of the ceremony.

I encourage you to participate and join this global, ritual ceremony wherever you are in the world. With digital media and social networks, today we can involve many more people like you. The idea is that you invent your own ritual.

You're invited to print some images of the vaquita and place them in important places surrounded by some beloved objects, flowers, and candles. Photograph and document your altar and upload it to, where you will see it as part of a world map which will display all the altars around the world. In this way, you may honor the vaquita, and your voice will be added to those of many other people and diverse cultural spaces in sounding the alarm for the serious damage we are causing to the natural world.
