Swimming around in Mexico’s Gulf of California, there exists a tiny little marine mammal that might be the cutest of all marine mammals. Vaquita porpoises grow to lengths of about 4-5 feet, and they live only in that particular part of the world’s oceans. But sadly, researchers have found that there are only about 10 left. In the world. Which, when it comes to wild animals, is not very many. All is not lost, however.
Vaquitas have been in dire straits for a long time. Kelly Slater took up the charge a few years back, when there were about 60 left.
