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.
