Project Description

The vaquita, the world’s smallest whale, is near extinction as its habitat is destroyed by Mexican cartels and Chinese mafia, who harvest the swim bladder of the totoaba fish, the “cocaine of the sea.” Environmental activists, Mexican navy and undercover investigators are fighting back against this illegal multi-million-dollar business.

A National Geographic documentary about brave individuals who are saving the last living vaquita porpoises from the clutches of drug cartels will keep you on the edge of your seat like a gripping suspense thriller. Sundance Film Festival audience award!
