    Abstract The vaquita is a species of porpoise on the brink of extinction with less than 10 individuals estimated to be left in the wild. Although not commercially targeted, the vaquita is collateral damage in an ongoing conflict between fishers, government and international illegal trade. Conservation of this species, therefore, must include provisions for and engagement of all stakeholders involved. This technical background report for the 2021/2022 edition of the Interconnected Disaster Risks report analyses the root causes, drivers, impacts and potential solutions for the vanishing vaquita through a forensic analysis of academic literature, media articles and expert interviews.
