The Vaquita, the smallest of the porpoises, can be up to five feet long. It is the rarest and the most endangered marine mammal. Discovered in 1958, there are estimated to be only 100 left. Over half of their population were destroyed in the last three years. They live only in the northern part of the Gulf of Mexico and are mostly threatened by nets used by illegal fishers.
