The vaquita is nearly extinct.

Scientists estimate that the species now numbers about 60 individuals and is declining rapidly. We do not know the age/sex composition of the remaining individuals and, in particular, we do not know the number of females and their reproductive capacity. If the remaining population includes more males or older females than expected (or hoped), then the species’ status is even worse than the total number indicates.
