The Vaquita is a small porpoise endemic to the Sea of Cortez, and is the world's smallest and most endangered small marine cetacean. With fewer than 200 left, it is feared that high levels of entanglement in fishing gear threaten imminent extinction if current trends continue.

Each year, anywhere between 40 and 80 vaquitas are killed in gillnets and trawl nets used in both artisanal and commercial fishing. At the same time, the habitat of the species has been altered by damming of the Colorado River in the US.

You will not see these unusual cetaceans around Los Cabos however specialist tours are sometimes advertised to the northern part of the Sea of Cortez where they can be seen.
