Vaquita: Science, Politics and Crime in the Sea of Cortez
by Brooke Bessesen
In this haunting story, Brooke Bessesen sets to Mexico’s Upper Gulf region to untangle the intricacies of the biology, acoustical science and international intrigue behind the Vaquita decline. The world’s most endangered marine mammal is not hunted, its habitat is not disappearing or degraded and the species is protected by law.
With a foreword by Carl Safina.
