Director Statement After working on conservation projects through Under the Skin over the past five years, this story of the Vaquita is certainly the most tragic and complex. It is a reflection of what is happening to countless species around the world. We felt compelled to tell the tale in a fast paced, engaging yet lighthearted narrative.
AniFab judge's aggregate score is 9.8 out of a 10 with one judge making a case for inclusion in the annual benefit series, "The Last Vaquita is an eloquent addition to the emerging story of the critically endangered Vaquita. Prior to last years release of Sea Of Shadows I don't believe there was much known about this "Cocaine" of the sea that is disappearing fast. Can the world know about this species quick enough to help before it disappears forever? Congratulations and thank you to the Harrison Bros. for beating the drum loudly, beautifully. We hope to be able to include The Last Vaquita in our annual benefit showcase. Let's amplify the beat of the Bros."

The title is a technical term related to space travel for good reason. It also symbolizes a final determination, which is a hard step to take.

This is how the result became an allegorical story of letting go embedded in a sci-fi context.
