MARINE MAMMAL BOOKS AND REPRINTS SOUGHT
Â¡VIVAVaquita! (a non-profit organization) is seeking marine mammal books, reprints, monographs, and journals. Literature can be donated or we can purchase sets of books, reprints, and journals. We compile and then make the literature available to colleagues working on marine mammals, getting it into hands where it will be actively used, and in the process help to raise funds for research and conservation work on the vaquita (Phocoena sinus), the Worldâs most endangered marine mammal species. Donations are tax-deductible, and we may be able to arrange pick-up of large libraries (and possibly even to provide some payment for more valuable items).
As you may have heard, the global population of this species now numbers <100 individuals and is decling at about 19%/year. We are currently collecting literature as part of our efforts to help fund our education and public awareness work, in a last-ditch effort to avoid the extinction of this species in the next couple of years! Visit our website at www.vivavaquita.org for more details. If you have any marine mammal literature you would be interested in donating or âsellingâ to us, please contact Tom Jefferson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
