Although we never enjoyed the privilege of working with Ken Norris, it is hard to imagine a marine mammalogist who has not been influenced by his work directly or indirectly. His influence is especially strong for those of us working with the vaquita. In 1958 mammalogists world-wide were able to read the description of a new species of porpoise from the Gulf of California (Norris and MFarland hypothesized that speciation occurred through isolation in the Upper Gulf of California. These views are still accepted today. These examples illustrate Ken Norris extraordinary understanding of natural history and biological processes. Ken kept his interest in vaquita biology and conservation his entire life and published other papers about the species. To the pioneer that Ken Norris was in the conservation of marine mammals, particularly in the case of the vaquita, we dedicate this paper about the conservation of this endemic porpoise from the Upper Gulf of California.
