It’s that time of year again!
Whale shark sightings are being reported off palm beach. This time last year our divers spent over an hour with a beautiful 25-30ft male. 
_
“Winter” diving in Florida is the best time for large animal encounters, from #whaleshark and #mantaray to #tiger shark #hammerhead and #sawfish . NOW is the time be out here with us.

I have launched a YouTube Channel! 
I’ve been toying with the idea of making videos for a long time now, but I’ve finally made a short vlog about my visit to the @seacreaturestour in #Harrogate last month - check out the link in my bio to watch and let me know what you think! 
I’m going to be trying to post weekly vlogs every Saturday, so please subscribe and stay tuned for some travel vlogs from the USA coming very soon 🇺🇸

All 5 species of sawfish are listed as endangered or critically endangered and considered to be the most threatened marine fishes in the world. Education, conservation and policy efforts are active around the world to try and save these remarkable creatures.

Four items I made for the Rijksmuseum Boerhaave, the Netherlands’ treasure chamber of science and medicine. A unicorn tusk (the end of a tusk of a narwhal), a piece of spermaceti (waxy substance found in the head of a sperm whale), five crab’s eyes (oculi cancrorum) and a piece of the nose of a sawfish. Vier bijzondere objecten gemaakt voor Museum Boerhaave in Leiden: Een stuk slagtand van een narwal (hoorn van een eenhoorn), een stuk walschot (spermaceti, wasachtige substantie uit de schedel van een potvis), 5 kreeftsogen (kalkafzettingen uit de maag van een kreeft) en het uiteinde van de snuit van een zaagvis. #unicorn #sawfish #lobster #narwhal #wildlifeart #wildlifeartist #natureart #natureartwork #taxidermy #taxidermyart #taxidermie #sculpture #sculpting #sculptureart #pharmacology #pharmacists #museum #sculptureart #boerhaave #boerhaavemuseum

Rob Stewart​ wanted the world to see the planet's most threatened species... to fall in love with their incredible adaptations before it was too late. His last mission was to film #sawfish and rally the globe around their protection.

New study from the EDGE of Existence program lists the largetooth sawfish as the number one species facing extinction on the planet. We need to celebrate, cherish and protect this #shark before we lose them forever.

Amazing shot from @60poundbullet

Something you don't get to see everyday.
Charley and I ventured deep into the Everglades today and absolutely pummeled the snook on artificial.
This cooler weather had the fish pushed up into the mud bottoms and my malvado 26' was able to draft shallow enough to get me where the fish where. 
We also stumbled upon this small tooth sawfish as it was feeding. It was slashing it's blade in and out of the water killing bait presumably to eat. It was a sighting we will definitely remember forever.

Green sawfish are the largest of all living sawfishes, reaching up to an incredible 7.3 meters in length! This ocean giant can also live for up to 50 years. 
Sawfish have traditionally been targeted for their saw-like rostra - Mayans were buried with them, and their parts are used in traditional medicines in Brazil and China. 
Sawfishes have very high EDGE scores - the top 4 species in the EDGE Sharks and Rays list are sawfish, and the largetooth sawfish has the highest ranking of any species that has been assessed by EDGE!

Find out more about this species on our website (link in bio)

Our Timber Creek Rangers today presented at the @indigenouslandcorporation Real Jobs Program regional forum in Darwin. 
In August, the Timber Creek rangers captured 25 dwarf and largetooth sawfish, and provided the first recorded evidence of the critically endangered speartooth shark and northern river shark in the Victoria River.

Their sawfish monitoring program, in partnership with @csirogram is hoping to shed more light on the sawfish, one of the most endangered species on the planet!

The forum brought together 14 Indigenous organisations and around 70 participants to share lessons learnt and showcase their many successes. 
Proud of the work of our Timber Creek rangers and their important work looking after country in the Victoria River District.

Sawfishes, also known as carpenter sharks, are a family of rays characterized by a long, narrow, flattened rostrum, or nose extension, lined with sharp teeth, arranged in a way that resembles a saw. They are among the largest fish with some species reaching lengths of about 7–7.6 m. #fish #ocean #long #saw #sawfish #ray #shark #fishfam

Another awesome trip to The Deep. So glad my uni course isn't normal.
On a more serious note please be super mindful with recycling so that rubbish doesn't spoil the habitat of these gorgeous creatures

Sawfish spotted at the Jupiter wrecks with Jupiter Dive Center. I'm STOKED to see so many photos of them turning up on insta. Maybe I'll get lucky and spot one a dive, too!

WE SAW A SAWFISH! 🎉😎🥂
.
The smalltooth sawfish (Pristis pectinata) is extremely vulnerable to over exploitation and has disappeared from much of its historical range. It is therefore listed as a critically endangered species and encounters like this, in their natural habitat, is extremely rare! .

To add to this amazing experience, we did 4 Nitrox dives which were filled with loads of Caribbean reef sharks, lemons, nurse sharks and a sneaky tiger shark, as well as loggerhead and green turtles and big southern stingrays. This is definitely one of my best diving days ever! I am feeling incredibly blessed for every second I’m submerged and surrounded by such exceptional animals! 🦈🐢🐠 .

‘Probably one of my favourite wildlife moments - During a two week expedition with Dr. Barbara Wueringer and @sharksandraysau in the Gulf of Carpentaria I was able to work with Winghead sharks. Little is known about these incredible and unique endangered small sharks. It has always been a dream of mine to see this species in the wild and now I could top that by doing scientific work in order to aid in their conservation. After a quick work up, where the animal is tagged and measured, as well as DNA samples taken, it is quickly released back into the water. We mostly caught juvenile sharks that use the river mouth of the Norman River as a nursery. Adults have been reported to grow to 1.80 meters. Most animals we caught were ca 70cm long. As you can see their hammer can be huge and wide when compared in proportion to their body length. Also on this trip we caught bull sharks, freshwater whiprays and giant shovelnose rays. Although we did not catch a sawfish, this trip has been incredible and the river ecosystems of far north queensland harbour an incredible diversity of amazing animals including huge crocodiles! all worth protecting.’ #winghead #australia #conservation #sharks #hammerhead #sawfish #river #queensland #bullshark #crocodile #science #protection #endangered #dna

The waters of Western Australia can be a dangerous place. Although ferocious predators themselves, freshwater sawfish have to avoid many places, such as the jaws of a freshwater crocodile. These crocodilians are the apexes of their ecosystem and will feast on any other large creature that they can find.

The Sawfish or Carpenter shark, has a unique snout with what are more like scales running along it as its real teeth are in its mouth. NOAA estimates that this species has declined by 95% or more due to bycatch and habitat loss. #shark #activist #ocean #noaa #sharkeffort #sharkfinning #sawfish #carpentershark #bycatch #habitat #habitatloss

While many chose to spend their Black Friday shopping for great deals, two Biscayne rangers were busy saving the world, or at the very least, doing their part to #KeepBiscayneBeautiful.

It all started when park visitors reported a smalltooth #sawfish struggling due to entanglement in a large mass of lobster trap line.  The trap line prevented the fish from moving and caused skin abrasions. The park rangers sprang into action to help save the sawfish, which is classified as "Endangered" under the Endangered Species Act. 
The rangers were able to safely remove the offending trap line and the sawfish swam away, no doubt in a much happier state. 
Recognize that because smalltooth sawfish can be extremely dangerous and because they are considered endangered, you should never attempt to handle or approach a sawfish.
