VIVA Vaquita would like to announce that we will be participating in a special screening of the short documentary Souls of the Vermilion Sea, followed by a panel discussion on Sunday, March 25th, from 3-5 PM PST. Co-hosted by ASU’s Center for Biodiversity Outcomes (CBO) and several local organizations, this event will be held on the campus of Arizona State University, and will be live-streamed for a global audience. We hope you will join the conversation with a distinguished panel of experts, who will discuss this compelling conservation challenge. In light of recent vaquita CPR efforts in the Gulf of California, it is a timely and important opportunity to query experts on the status of current recovery efforts.
The short documentary will be available for viewing for the duration of the event at the following link, which currently directs visitors to the event announcement. On the day of the event, the link will connect to CBO’s YouTube channel, where the 30-minute documentary will be available for viewing, as well as the actual live-streamed discussion. Viewers will be able to post questions for the panel through this platform:
