Vaquita Townhomes in the Highlands is named for the critically endangered Vaquita; a rare species of porpoise. Vaquita means, “little cow”

 

If you missed the news, it’s not good. There are only 60 Vaquita left in the entire world. This small porpoise is only found in the Gulf of California in Mexico. Vaquita are the most endangered marine mammal species in the world.  If we do not help now, vaquita could become the SECOND whale species to go extinct in 10 years. Scientists declared the Chinese (baiji) river dolphin extinct in 2006. Sadly, with little or no fanfare. We can’t allow that to happen to Vaquita.
