International Sawfish Day
This day is dedicated to raising awareness of sawfish, a family of rays characterized by long, saw-like snouts. Sawfish are currently some of the most threatened family of marine fishes due to habitat loss and overfishing. The day encourages research, conservation efforts, and education about these unique creatures. It’s an opportunity to learn about their ecological role, the threats they face, and what can be done to protect them, from responsible fishing practices to supporting the protection of their habitats.
