Ken Norris was for us not only important for his contribution to the recognition of the vaquita as a species but also as an inspired thinker. He was a role model for the hybrid vigor contributed to many fields by the creative thinker who will boldly cross from one area to the next pollinating our imaginations. With Ken in the field of marine mammal science there was never any danger of inbreeding depression. We therefore dedicate to Ken this manuscript, which we hope uses Ken's style of bringing all possible tools to bear on a problem by blending lessons from the genetics of captive animals, the population dynamics of wild marine mammals, and computer simulations of evolution to reject the hypothesis of certain doom of the species he brought to the attention of science.
