This GrantCraft case study, developed for Foundation Center's FundingtheOcean.org portal, explores how the Marisla Foundation stepped outside of its traditional grantmaking role to help save the vaquita from extinction. It includes the perspective of one of it's grantees in the area, World Wildlife Fund Mexico, and how they worked together to change fishing regulations and behaviours in the Gulf of Mexico to protect the species from further decline.
