The other side of fieldwork - Sharks And Rays Australia

One of the goals of my project was to find out if sawfish are or have the potential to be a flagship species for the geographical region and ecosystems that they are found in. As this first field season for Sharks And Rays Australia comes to an end, and with it the Project “Sawfishes – spreading the love”, it is time for an assessment. It has been an unforgettable year, and this is what this post is about – the other side of our sawfish research – that, what comes under the umbrella of our flagship species. This post is a tribute to the ecosystems that we have entered over the last year, the people we have met, the animals that we were lucky enough to encounter and some unforgettable moments. Enjoy!
