  • Jacques Cousteau once referred to the Sea of Cortez – one of the most biologically diverse bodies of water on the planet– as the "Aquarium of the World." We're not just fighting for the vaquita, we're fighting for the whole region, for the life and biodiversity of the planet. Join us.

SEA OF SHADOWS is now playing in NY and LA and will expand even further this Friday. Join us.

  • "Sea of Shadows" is a gripping watch, there's the thriller aspect as we go into the world of trafficking, but ultimately, it transcends a nature documentary; it is an ecosystem crisis that led to Leonardo Di Caprio getting invalved to helo spread the word via his platforms. At the premiere the other night, Jane Goodall came out to speax at the event and show her support. The documentary has traveled to Washirgton. Work is being done. The film is being seen. One can hope that with this spotlight on the film , we can triumph in saving the Vaquita from extinction and that governments will pay attention. #seaofshadows #leonardodicaprio #nationalgeographic @natgeo @leonardodicaprio

  • Yesterday’s post talked about the Vaquita and the remaining population. I mentioned this population is so small, they now face a new threat of an extinction vortex. But what does that mean??
.
.
Small and isolated populations are threatened by extinction for several interaction reasons. These populations are more vulnerable to demographic and environmental stochasticity, such as the impending threats of climate change and declining habitat availability. This is due to the reduced gene pool for adaption through natural selection to act upon. Additionally, even before significant environmental pressures, these populations face several genetic threats. These conditions combine to place the populations into an extinction vortex long before a species may be considered extinct. .
.
Firstly, due to restricted mating opportunities, inbreeding becomes more likely. As well as immediate threats such as infertility, due to dominate and recessive genes, inbreeding will continue to reduce a gene pool over generations regardless of true population size. If a population remains small and isolated over many generations, they lose genetic variation necessary to respond to environmental challenges (random fixation or loss of alleles through genetic drift). Finally, unfavourable mutations are expected to accumulate because selection operates less efficiently in small populations. Of these processes, inbreeding poses a most immediate threat, whereas genetic drift and mutation accumulation affect the population in the long term. Environmental, demographic and genetic factors can interact and reinforce each other in a downward spiral, known as an extinction vortex.

  • Sea of Shadows 🆘 | National Geographic

A looming disaster in one of the most spectacular environments on Earth sparks a rescue mission unlike any other in 
SEA OF SHADOWS, a riveting new documentary with the intensity of a Hollywood thriller from National Geographic Documentary Films and winner of the Sundance audience award. 
When Mexican drug cartels and Chinese traffickers join forces to poach the rare totoaba fish in the Sea of Cortez, their deadly methods threaten to destroy virtually all marine life in the region, including the most elusive and endangered whale species on Earth, the Vaquita porpoise.

SEA OF SHADOWS follows a team of dedicated scientists, high-tech conservationists, investigative journalists and courageous undercover agents as well as the Mexican Navy as they put their lives on the line to save the last remaining vaquitas and bring the vicious international crime syndicate to justice.

Sea of Shadows is a an in-depth reminder that we as humans are quite literally killing our planet, the sensitivity of ecosystems and the trickle-effect one species can have on the world.

  • Huge thank you to National Geographic for having me at your LA premiere of Sea of Shadows last night♥️ There are less than 15 Vaquitas, the smallest marine mammal, left in the world. The humans behind this movie have hearts of gold, and need our help in this mission, and future ones. Please the sign the petition to save the Vaquitas (my bio has the link), go watch the movie on July 12th, and brainstorm your own ways to take action. Every part of our world needs you. #SeaOfShadows
