Hosted by Island Press on November 8, 2018 and moderated by Dr. Tom Jefferson, this webinar brought together a global audience of 513 registrants from 22 countries on 6 continents. The one-hour program explores the plight of the world's most endangered marine mammal, the vaquita (Phocoena sinus), through a presentation and Q&A with wildlife researcher and author Brooke Bessesen.

As Bessesen writes in her new book, Vaquita: Science, Politics, and Crime in the Sea of Cortez<https://islandpress.org/books/vaquita>, "Conservation is messy business." Economic, cultural, political, and legislative forces all come into play when considering protection strategies for an at-risk species. And, frustratingly, the best approach for victory isn't always clear. By examining the economic, cultural, and legislative aspects of vaquita conservation, Bessesen and Jefferson encourage viewers to consider the universal goals and challenges related to disappearing species worldwide.
