Mexico | Critically endangered vaquita found dead in fishing net; only about 20 remain

A vaquita marina, a critically endangered porpoise of which about 20 are believed to remain, was found dead in a fish net off the coast of Mexico, environmentalists said Thursday.


Two patrol ships from the environmental group Sea Shepherd found the vaquita's badly decayed carcass Tuesday, trapped in a gill net in a protected marine reserve in the Gulf of California, in northwestern Mexico, the organization said in a statement.
