Starting today, the Mexican government, supported by Mexican and international experts and scientists, will begin an unprecedented effort to save the vaquita. Vaquita CPR (Conservation, Protection, and Recovery) seeks to temporarily relocate the remaining vaquitas to a sea-based sanctuary, with the end goal of returning the porpoises to their natural habitat once the primary threat to their survival – drowning in gillnets – has been eliminated. WWF recognizes this effort as a risky but necessary action to save the vaquita from extinction. While this is going on, we will continue our conservation efforts, such as “ghost” net retrieval and acoustic monitoring, to ensure a gillnet-free environment for the vaquitas. #SaveTheVaquita

Happy #WorldGorillaDay! Gorillas share 98.3% of their DNA with humans, making them our closest cousins after chimpanzees and bonobos. They live in family groups led by a dominant male who holds his position for years. Once a female begins to breed, she will likely give birth to only one baby every four to six years and only three or four over her lifetime. This low rate of reproduction makes it difficult for gorillas to recover from population declines, and a 2010 United Nations report revealed that they may disappear from large parts of the Congo Basin by the mid-2020s. WWF is working with partners to help save this magnificent animal. Our longest-running gorilla research and tourism program is in Dzanga-Sangha Protected Areas in the Central African Republic.

“A mating pair of lions lounges together during sunrise in Maasai Mara National Reserve. Of the dozens of mammals I saw when I traveled to Kenya with WWF—elephants, cheetahs, leopards, giraffes—lions opened up their world to us more than any other. Because we stayed in a secluded mobile camp in the middle of Maasai Mara National Reserve, we were able to visit areas where there were no other tourists and spend hours observing lions without interruption.” – WWF’s Elissa Poma
