According to foreign media reported on November 15, recently, Greenpeace released a picture showing a highly endangered marine mammal swimming. It is called the vaquitas. The group calls for everyone to protect this creature because they currently have fewer than 30 dolphins and are therefore known as "pandas in the sea."
A team of scientists called the Vaquita CPR intends to take some extreme approaches, such as capturing one and then artificial breeding. It is reported that in early November, a small captive dolphin was captured. It was taken to a fence and it started very fast, but soon began to slow down and eventually stopped breathing. The team said it was heartbreaking.
Paul Watso, founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, warned: "We did not support this approach from the start, which would put more pressure on the animal." His team has been in the past two years Committed to protecting the dolphins, including pulling out 50 tons of gillnets from the water. Poachers illegally used them for fishing, dolphins died because of the plunge.
It is reported that Vaquita CPR has now given up the idea of capturing small head dolphins, but did not give up completely to save them, they plan to mark these creatures. At present, dolphins mainly live in the Sea of Cortez, dropping from 567 in 1997 to 245 in 2008, leaving only 30 in 2016.
