Vaquita -  Marine Debris Awareness Bracelet

The Vaquita (Phocoena sinus), the world’s smallest & most endangered cetacean. The vaquita is a porpoise that is found only in Mexico’s Gulf of California and they are on the thin edge of extinction directly due to human activity. Found only in the northern Gulf of Mexico, it is Mexico’s only endemic marine mammal. Extinction of the vaquita, the world’s most endangered marine mammal, is imminent without the immediate elimination of illegal fishing and removal of deadly gillnets from the vaquita’s environment.

To show our love and support, we have released this bracelet to raise awareness of their plight. Sadly, fewer than 30 vaquita remain and so we will be creating a limited edition run of 30 "Vaquita" bracelets.
