Hope Spot - Gulf of California: one of the world’s richest and youngest seas

About Hope Spot - Gulf of California: one of the world’s richest and youngest seas
The Gulf of California, also known as the Sea of Cortez, is a 700-mile long narrow sea between Baja and mainland Mexico and one of the world’s richest and youngest seas. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005 due to its immense biodiversity and biological productivity. The Gulf is home to over 800 species of fish, 2000 invertebrates, as well as whales, dolphins, sea turtles and sea lions. The critically endangered Vaquita porpoise finds its only home on Earth here. The region supports 256,000 hectares of mangroves, 600,000 hectares of wetlands and 70% of Mexican fisheries and is also home to the deepest hydrothermal vents in the Pacific Ocean at a depth of 12,500 feet. The Gulf’s biological proliferation attracts over 1.5 million visitors every year.
