In 2016 I collaborated with Ruth Leeney of Protect Africa’s Sawfishes to create an educational book for fishing communities and schools in Africa. “The King of the Fishes” is an important tool in spreading awareness about these critically endangered rays and what people can do if they find one. It’s available in English, French, Portuguese and Malagasy and has been shared in dozens of communities and schools; here’s a photo shared just yesterday of the book reaching primary schools in southwest Madagascar via @beyondconservation!

Watch the whole video to see Sawfishes, aka Carpenter Sharks up close and creepy.

Totally ignored the fact that a saw fish was literally above our ride. 🐋🤷🤔 Worst camera result due to the darkness, but had to capture this creature! .
It's mouth has a very close resemblance to human lips (creepiest part). But a total nature's beauty 💞🐠🦈 Amazed! 😍 .

Today (17th October) is the very first #IntlSawfishDay!

International Sawfish Day is an event created in partnership with the Sawfish Conservation Society, the European and American Associations of Zoos and Aquariums who want to raise awareness for Sawfishes.

The aim is to educate people on the threats they face as well as developing conservation strategies that will protect them.

Sawfish are large, shark-like rays of warm, shallow, coastal waters, estuaries, and rivers. Their tooth-studded snouts (rostra), which are easily entangled in fishing gear, and their low reproductive rates make them exceptionally susceptible to overfishing. Sawfish are also threatened by degradation of habitats such as mangroves. There are only five species of Sawfish in the world – the Knifetooth Sawfish (Anoxypristis cuspidata) and Dwarf Sawfish (Pristis clavata) are classified in the IUCN Red List as Endangered, while the Smalltooth Sawfish (Pristis pectinata), Largetooth Sawfish (Pristis pristis) and Green Sawfish (Pristis zijsron) are Critically Endangered. They are considered the most threatened elasmobranchs (sharks and rays) in the world due to destructive fishing practises, habitat destruction and the curio trade.

The various Sawfish species range from 1.4 metres to 7.5 metres in length, making them true #megafish. They can be found in inshore coastal areas such as coastal lagoons, estuarine environments, and brackish river deltas, although they may also swim up rivers into freshwater environments. Sawfishes prefer shallow, muddy, brackish water, spending most of their time on or near the seabed. The rostrum contains extensive sensory organs that can detect the minute electrical signals from prey. It is used to ‘club’ fish - stunning or killing them before they are eaten.

Three species of Sawfish were historically recorded in Singapore waters - the Knifetooth, Largetooth, and Green Sawfishes. However, they are now extremely rare, if not already locally extinct; the last record was in 2001. Sadly, Sawfishes have already disappeared from most of the areas where they were once found, and more needs to be done to protect the few surviving populations around the world.

This #taxonomytuesday : Elasmobranchii is a subclass of fish belonging to the Chondrichthyes class (also known as cartilaginous fish). This subclass contains two extant superorders: Selachii (sharks) and Batoidea (skates, sawfish and rays).
The fish of this subclass are characterized by the absence of the swim bladder and 5-7 pairs of gill slits.

Swam in these beautiful waters in SÉAtubal, Portugal. 😉🌊 #sawfishes 🐠#setubal #globalnavigators #studyingabroad
Sawfishes are nocturnal, usually sleeping during the day and hunting at night. Despite their fearsome appearance, they do not attack people unless provoked or surprised. The small-tooth sawfish is well known by fishermen as a prize game fish because of the fight it puts up once hooked.

Here's a short video of a Freshwater #Sawfish from the Kimberley region of Western #Australia - the #GoPro still bears a scratch! All #species of #sawfishes are listed as #Endangered or #CriticallyEndangered by the #IUCN, and face the threat of #extinction as a result of #habitat loss and #overfishing. Global populations of every species of sawfishes are estimated to have fallen to less than 10% of their historic levels, and they have been lost from at least 80% of their historic range. The smalltooth #sawfish (#Pristis pectinata), for example, was once widely distributed, but available data indicate the range of this species has been reduced by about 90%, and population numbers have declined dramatically, perhaps by 95% or more.

يتميز سمك المنشار بأنفه الذي يشبه المنشار، والذي يستخدمه لتتبع حركة فرائسه عند اختبائها، ويستخدمه أيضاً كأداة للحفر وللدفاع عن نفسه ضد الحيوانات المفترسة مثل أسماك القرش. كما أن هذا النوع محمي بموجب القانون، فإذا شاهدتموه، نرجو الاتصال بهيئة البيئة - أبوظبي على رقم ٨٠٠٥٥٥. #بيئة_أبوظبي 
The sawfish's most distinctive feature is its saw-like nose that is used to detect its preys movement when hiding, it’s also a digging tool, and uses its nose to defend itself against predators such as sharks. This species is protected by law and should you come in contact with them please report the sighting to EAD immediately at 800555. #EnvAgencyAD #sawfish #marinelife #sealife #endangered #species #environment #iucn #sharks #sawfishes #abudhabi #ead #uae

#can #we #save the #Tiger ?

When it comes to looking after all the species that are already #endangered, there's such a lot to do that sometimes it might all seem to be too much, especially when there are so many other important things to worry about. But if we stop trying, the chances are that pretty soon we'll end up with a #world where there are no tigers or #elephants, or #sawfishes or whooping #cranes, or #albatrosses or ground #iguanas. And I think that would be a #shame, don't you?
