The Last Vaquita (trailer)

With the Vaquita Porpoise on the brink of extinction, co-founders of Under the Skin Ed & James Harrison leave their design studio behind and head to a small fishing town in Mexico.

Here, the two brothers board the M/V Farley Mowat to experience the front-line fight between ocean conservationists Sea Shepherd and the poachers, backed by the Mexican cartel, who are devastating countless marine species.

Caught up in a tale of greed and corruption, they witness a battle that seems all but lost and find themselves questioning their place in the world.

Can they use their craft to take action amidst today’s Sixth Mass Extinction?
