    Souls of the Vermilion Sea | Can we bring the Vaquita back from the brink of extinction?

    Some filmmakers are hoping to raise enough money to make a documentary about the critically endangered vaquita porpoise. They've almost reached the funding goal and I do hope it gets made, since there aren't any documentaries I can find about the species. If it doesn't get funded in time, I wonder if Leonardo DiCaprio will swoop in? But it is close, and if it gets made, I look forward to it. They're going to film for a few years, tracking vaquita conservation, and see where things go. Will they watch the population improve, or will they document the extinction?
