Wildlife
Project in progress

What is your wish for this project?

Vaquita, the world's most rare marine mammal, is on the edge of extinction. I wish for my project to bring awareness to the potential extinction of the Vaquita porpoise.

How are you going to do it?

As the official young reporter for Bear essentials newspaper (publication in Phoenix metro areas and Tucson, Arizona) http://bearessentialnews.com/, I will draw and color a Vaquita to illustrate the beautiful porpoise for my readers. I will research and write an article about the marine porpoise and include details of the endangered species, its habitat and reasons for its near extinction status. I will review my article and illustration with the Bear Essential News editors and then publish it.
