The kayaking trip to the northern most tip of Australian continues. We arrive at a sand cay (was super windy so apologies for the audio), catch & cook on the fire, get one of the best sunsets of the trip, cook a “Wongai Plum” damper and continually learn about nature along the way. Cheers for watching, and most importantly, hope to see you out here! Az
THE CRITICALLY ENDANGERED SAWFISH
Part of this mission was to give back to conservation. We wanted to more than account for any species we took from the ecosystem while fuelling our bodies. A part of this was packing a full sawfish research kit, in which two of the crew had been trained to use and knew where to target the fish, so in the event that we did, be ready to tag and release back into the wild. We did this under the direction of “Sharks and Rays Australia” (SARA).
Any data taken on this trip would give a better understanding of population health, genetic diversity, and distribution of sawfish, improving their conservation worldwide.
** If you have any sightings please report to www.saw.fish – though note it is against the law to target sawfish without a permit. They are a NO TAKE species. **
