save the sawfishSawfish are one of the most distinctive, charismatic fish in the ocean. Once, giant sawfish 30 feet long were found roaming the oceans of the Earth. Now, almost all the sawfish are gone, and among those that are left, it is almost impossible to find any that are even half the size of what former generations saw.

Whether you're an elasmobranch enthusiast, or just a lover of the life of the seas, you can help to spread the word about this ecological crisis that almost no one has even heard about.

Save the sawfish - and we may save ourselves too.
