Gulf of California
The Gulf of California is home to nearly a third of the world’s marine mammal species, more than 170 types of seabirds and over 700 different fish species, including great white and whale sharks. Five species of marine turtles feed or nest here. The vaquita—the world’s smallest cetacean—lives in the northern part of the Gulf, where WWF works hard to prevent its extinction. Much of our work on species is done through partnerships, such as with Telcel.
