# La ballena 70 by Spanish-born artist Jonipunto is part of the series “La cuenta atrás:  la ballena” (The Countdown:  The Whale) which, in his website, dialogues with “Extinciones” (Extinctions) by Uruguayan-born poet Mario Benedetti:

“No sólo las ballenas, los delfines, los osos […]  corren peligro de extinguirse. También enfrentan ese riesgo las promesas […]  la carta magna, los jubilados, los sin techo, la ética primaria, la autocrítica, los escrúpulos simples, el rechazo al soborno […]”   (Not only are the whales, the dolphins, the bears […] in danger of extinction.  So are promises, […] the constitution, retired people, the homeless, basic ethics, self-criticism, scruples, the refusal to receive bribes […]).
