The iconic Sea Shepherd visited Puerto Penasco this week and offered tours aboard to the public.

Recently Sea Shepherd entered into an agreement with Mexico’s Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources to patrol the waters of the Sea of Cortez and inform Mexico’s Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection and the Secretariat of the Navy about any abandoned gillnets located in the Zero Tolerance Area and the Vaquita Refuge. The nets will be recovered and delivered by Mexico’s National Commission for Aquaculture and Fisheries to protect the critically endangered vaquita porpoise.
