"The Endangered Sawfish" Presentation
Sawfish are large shark-like rays that used to be relatively common in Florida waters including the Keys. Today, Florida's sawfish is endangered, and scientists are striving to learn as much as possible about this iconic and fascinating fish.
Join us to see a three foot sawfish replica, feel some real sawfish rostra (saws), and get some great sawfish swag. During her presentation Tonya Wiley, President of Havenworth Coastal Conservation, will bring you interesting facts about sawfish, updates on current research projects, explanations of management tools such as the Endangered Species Act, descriptions of ways you can be involved in the recovery of sawfish, and other information about the unique and endangered smalltooth sawfish.
