Alphabet animals postcard V is for Vaquita
V is for Vicky, Vaclav, Victor, Violet, Valerie, Vinny and Vaquita.
Vaquita (phocoena sinus) Native to the gulf of California.
One of a series of ‘Alphabet animals’ © Natalie Gray Design 2018
Conservation status: IUCN Red list critically endangered species.
Please note: The vaquita is the world’s rarest marine mammal,
Vaquita are often caught and drowned in gillnets used by illegal fishing operations
in marine protected areas within Mexico’s Gulf of California.
This little porpoise was only discovered in 1958, yet it’s already on the brink of extinction.
A survey released earlier this year estimated the vaquita population was as low as 30 individuals.
An all time low for the porpoise, the population is half of what it was just the year before. And a 97% drop from the year before that.
This Illustrated animal alphabet letter, inspired by art nouveau, will bring cheer to the recipient!
Perfect to give or send for a name day, the birth of a new baby, birthday or to collect and frame as
an art card.
