An important legacy from Ken Norris, not only to marine mammalogists but to all interested in preserving our natural world, was to be conscious of how fragile our natural surroundings can be. Unfortunately the vaquita is in danger of extinction. It would be a shame if this species, first described by Norris, were also the first cetacean in modern times to go extinct. We hope that current efforts by Mexico and the International Committee for the Recovery of the Vaquita will bear fruit. It is our honor to dedicate this paper, which we hope will mark the first step away from extinction, to the memory of Ken Norris.
