International Sawfish Day 2017

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 endangered and critically endangered sawfish species.

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

There are only five species of sawfish in the world – Dwarf sawfish, Knifetooth sawfish, Smalltooth sawfish, Largetooth sawfish and Green sawfish. They are considered the most threatened elasmobranchs (i.e. sharks and rays) in the world due to destructive fishing practises, habitat destruction and the curio trade.
