Mexico: Save the Vaquitas

To President of Mexico Peña Nieto, Minister of Environment Rafael Pacchiano, and Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries José Calzada:

As citizens from around the world horrified that vaquitas could vanish from the face of the earth, we urge you to establish and enforce an immediate, permanent ban on deadly gillnet fishing in Mexico. As there are only 30 vaquitas left, we call on you to do all you can to save this beautiful species from extinction before it’s too late.

More information:

Vaquitas are cute, timid aquatic mammals that look like mini-dolphins -- and there’s only 30 of them left! But if we act fast, we can still stop this beautiful species from vanishing forever.

They're dying because they get trapped in "gillnets" and drown. But Mexico is considering banning these nets right now, and a key government official has agreed to deliver our call right into the highest government offices.

Together, we can tip the decision in favour of the vaquitas. Let's show the Ministers if they propose a permanent ban, they'll have a million of us right behind them. Sign the urgent petition and share it with everyone.
