Vaquita Porpoises

This print protects the Vaquita Porpoise, with 20% of proceeds going directly to the Sea Shepherd Operation Milagro IV.

The Vaquita Porpoise is the first of four marine species in the “Ocean Warrior Series” that have been created in an exclusive partnership with Sea Shepherd. Sea Shepherd has spent the last four years patrolling the Sea of Cortez as part of its campaign, in which the marine conservation group patrols for poachers and pulls up illegal gillnets which trap and drown the Vaquita.

The Vanishing Vaquita

Under UV light the skeleton is revealed; all that remains if the Vaquita is to become extinct. The result is a unique and meaningful piece of interactive artwork. The intricate skeleton has high impact under UV light, but is equally subtle in daylight so as not to impede on the animal artwork when framed and hung on a wall.

What's in the box?

UV torch – flashlight used to interact with the print and reveal the animal’s anatomy.

Thank you card – a personal hand screen printed message from the makers, Ed and James.

Charity card – price breakdown of how Sea Shepherd Conservation Society use donations to protect the species.

Makers booklet – an editorial publication that shares the working process and story of the brothers.

Framing guide – care instructions of how to best protect your artwork.

Each screenprint is accompanied by a UV torch, beautifully packaged inside a box of printed memorabilia – a fitting package for an important message.

Sustainably Screen Printed

This Vaquita Porpoise screen print has been designed and hand-printed by Ed and James in a limited edition of 40 prints. They use Fedrigoni’s 350gsm Freelife Cento, a carbon balanced paper which Fedrigoni create in collaboration with The World Land Trust. Numbered and embossed, this interactive thirteen-layer screen print is comprised of twelve layers of water based pigment ink, finished with one layer of phosphorescent ink.
