MARINE MAMMAL BOOKS AVAILABLE

   ¡VIVAVaquita! is a non-profit organization dedicated to working to help save the vaquita from extinction.  All funds raised are actively used for research and conservation work on the vaquita (Phocoena sinus), the world’s most endangered marine mammal species, and other endangered cetaceans.  The global population of the vaquita now numbers less than 15 individuals and is nearing extinction. Visit our website at www.vivavaquita.org and watch a recording of International Save the Vaquita Day at vaquita.day for more details.  
   ¡VIVAVaquita! has hundreds of marine mammal books, reprints, monographs, and journals that are available for a donation to the organization.  Below is a sample of some of the rarer items we have (amount in US dollars listed is suggested donation, shipping is extra), but there are many, many more and suggested donation amounts range from US$1-100.  To request specific books or a list of additional books available, please contact Tom Jefferson at  sclymene at aol.com.
