Priorities ?


?????????

"..........Never give up hope - if there are those who are willing to spend time, effort and $$, it is possible the vaquita can recover. But if we do nothing, it is a certainty they will not........."

SO, referencing a VERY typical Liberal response used over the years to a host of spending choices with which THEY don't agree ........................ HOW MANY starving third-world children could be saved with the funds that they're hoping to spend on the Vaquita ?

This may just be a lot of showbiz to focus attention on the sad demise of the vaquita.
But there are still benefits to the northern Cortez area. I mean U.S. Navy dolphins? How cool is that?
And probably a large Mexican Navy presence during the operation.
Probably be on tv news too.;D

The Vaquita is worthy of our protection since HUMAN behavior has , and continues to directly cause it's demise. Somehow, it comes down to money for some people ( ie: how many third world children could be helped with the monies being used) How many third world children could be helped with the millions being spent to protect Prez Trump at his second White House in ( how ironic, a Mexican name ) Mar a Lago? Depends on your priorities , I guess..

I'll take the vaquita, and third world children. They BOTH deserve our support

Giving the World a Helping Hand


Without a doubt, I agree that Dolphins and 3rd World kids should be given equal consideration.

The little boys whose dads are fisherman may need your help. The only way to save the area is to curtail or severely limit fishing there.
I'm sure they were planning to be just like dad. So I'm guessing they will need to be trained for a different line of work.
It will be sad if they grow up angry and resentful about it all.

Retrain poachers?
The totoaba poachers should be thrown in jail!
The kids will properly learn to respect the law.

True, Mike, but the kids have a constitutional guarantee of a school education. Perhaps concentrate on that instead of sad economic traditions.

Learn to Properly Respect the LAW ?


In MEXICO ?

There's a Challenge.

But, perhaps, the legal system is getting the respect it deserves.

As the world's population has grown, it has become an immense challenge to balance the needs of the present generation, the future generations , along with the other species that inhabit this world we all share and make decisions that can somehow accomdate us all.

Perhaps, we can focus on providing the best we can to the most vulnerable, whether it be children, the future of families, and creatures that depend on us to ensure their continued existence, rather than spending money on "things" that provide a fleeting instant gratification that don't really make any of us any happier

You first😎.
I protect all of my vulnerables already.
The people who are not are the bladder poachers. And other illegal commercial fisherman etc. They want things, probably for their vulnerables...
If people would take responsibilty for themselves and their vulnerables in a legal and sustainable way... but that is unlikely.
So shining the light of day on this as the Sea Shepards are doing is probably the only thing that will help by shaming the Mex gov and the rest of the world into action.
But if you think going all peace corp. on poor children will help... be my guest.

Doing MY part most EVERY Day !


Making sure that the squirrels, raccoons, rabbits, crows, pigeons y otra critters in my area get fed.

Saving them from becoming endangered ?

I'd feed the Vaquitas, too, but I haven't seen any recently.
