Learn about large-tooth sawfish in lecture

Join Ann­marie Fear­ing, Uni­ver­sity of South­ern Mis­sis­sippi grad­u­ate stu­dent, at a lec­ture at 9:30 a.m. Jan. 11 at Bayshore Live Oak Park to learn about the crit­i­cally endan­gered large-tooth saw­fish pop­u­la­tion, how it has changed over the last cen­tury, and the study being under­taken to col­lect DNA from exist­ing saw­fish ros­tra (saws).  These stud­ies help sci­en­tists under­stand more about the past saw­fish pop­u­la­tions so that they can be bet­ter man­aged in the future. Char­lotte Har­bor is one of the last strong­holds for these crit­i­cally endan­gered species.
