The M/V Farley Mowat has just returned from the most successful campaign to save the vaquita to date, Operation Milagro IV.

This is Sea Shepherd’s fourth consecutive year in the Gulf and the most crucial one yet for the vaquita. The latest official numbers of this species have dropped to less than 30, half the amount previously recorded in the 2015. With such dire statistics, the vaquita is now the most endangered marine mammal in the world.
