Sea Shepherd vessel The @mvfarleymowat has arrived in the Upper Gulf of California to start Operation Milagro early this year. In previous years, the campaign has started as the totoaba fish returns from its migration to the vaquita habitat, around early November. Due to the critical state in which the vaquita porpoise species finds itself – currently the most endangered marine mammal in the world – #SeaShepherd is back earlier this season, with renewed strength to apply its proven techniques to protect the smallest porpoise in the world.
