New Vaquita Sculpture

Jacha has been busy creating a sculpture of the World's rarest porpoise.

After reading about the endangered Totoaba fish and how they are being hunted to the brink of extinction for their swim bladders Jacha was inspired to create a life sized sculpture of a Totoaba. He recycled cardboard and tin cans to make the sculpture.

A bycatch of the illegal gilnet fishery for the Totoaba is a small porpoise called the Vaquita. There are estimated to be only 30 Vaquitas led tin the world. After discovering this Jacha then created a life-sized sculpture of a Vaquita to display with the Totoaba in the Galeri.
