In 2019 no more than 10 Vaquita whales roam the ocean. The radical hunt for Totoaba, a fish worth ten thousands of dollars on the Chinese blackmarket, almost eradicated the Vaquita completely, because the Vaquitas get caught in the fishing nets too.
Mexico banned fishing in the Vaquitas’ habitat but the mafia does not care about official bans. A fight between Sea Shepherd, law enforcement and illegal fisherman erupts.
The film captures the complex situation surrounding the extinction of the Vaquita by showing the motives of every party involved.
Target audience: everyone who wants to learn about the mechanisms enabling and preventing species extinction
