When Mexican drug cartels and Chinese traffickers join forces to poach the rare totoaba fish in the Sea of Cortez, their methods threaten to destroy all marine life in the region. Most atrisk is the elusive vaquita porpoise, one of the most endangered whale species on Earth. This thrilling documentary follows a diverse, dedicated team of scientists, high-tech conservationists, investigative reporters, and undercover agents as they risk their lives to preserve what remains of the vaquita population and indict those who bring continual harm to the species.
