Source: Buttonwood Park Zoo joins effort to save endangered porpoise

The Buttonwood Park Zoo is among more than 100 Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) members to pledge over $1 million toward the emergency rescue of the vaquita porpoise, the world’s most endangered marine mammal.

The $5,000 donation by Buttonwood Park Zoo was donated through the zoo’s conservation fund, supported by zoo visitors. AZA and its members are joining the Mexican government, which recently announced that it is pledging up to $3 million to support the VaquitaCPR emergency rescue plan.
