This conservation detective story examines the world's most endangered marine mammal, the vaquita. Living in Mexico's Upper Gulf region, the "panda of the sea" has seen its numbers drastically reduced in the past several decades. Who is to blame? Brooke Bessesen takes us on a journey to uncover the story. She interviews townspeople, fishermen, scientists, and activists, teasing apart a complex story filled with villains and heroes, a story whose outcome is unclear. In this fast-paced, soul-searing tale, Brooke learns that there are no easy answers when extinction is profitable.
