¿Has visto al pez sierra?

Here at ConnectOcean, we've been working with the University of Costa Rica on our Marine Life Census Project. While collaborating, Mario Espinoza from UCR shared some of their other projects, one being the Sawfish Conservation Society. They are looking for Sawfish in Costa Rica.

This past week, two swimmers on ConnectOcean's Swim Team saw a sawfish here Playa Danta while participating in an open water swim training. This weekend the University of Costa Rica has come to the beach and some of us went diving and snorkeling in search of the sawfish. We didn't have any luck. today, but hopefully we picked him up on the Baited Remote Underwater Video Stations (BRUVS) we deployed! We'll keep you posted!
