The short documentary on the endangered vaquita porpoise “The Last Vaquita” is now streaming.
With its population in the Gulf of California decimated to 15 animals, vaquitas have suffered from being “bycatch trapped in nets for an equally endangered fish, the totoaba, captured for their bladders,” according to the film’s description. “Two British graphic design brothers were asked by the Sea Shepherd organization to create relevant silkscreen artwork. They decided to see the porpoise themselves, came to Mexico — and made this film for positive change.”
The two brothers, Ed and James Harrison, will be hosting a “Live Q&A,” the time and date to be announced soon.
You can watch the 13-minute film for US$10 (~€9.83) here.
