There are hardly any photographs of living specimens of this tiny cetacean, the smallest in the world: Almost all are of dead individuals, caught in fishing gear by accident. Very little is known about today’s Endangered All-Star. The vaquita lives in turbid, shallow water, surfacing briefly and swimming languidly. Only 150 are estimated to survive, all in the northern Gulf of California; the future of the species may depend on eradication of gill-netting in its habitat.
