About Us

Speak Up For The Ocean Blue raises awareness of the variety of ocean science and conservation projects conducted all around the world. It educates you, the listener, on the different Ocean Conservation Projects that are happening around the world. By listening to our guests, I hope to inspire you to live an ocean-friendly life through their stories and the information I provide to guide you towards a living a life that will be healthy for the Ocean. On the podcast episodes, I discuss, sharks, marine mammals (whales, dolphins, manatees, sea lions, seals), seabirds, fish (tuna, salmon, mackerel, cod, etc) as well as ocean issues like climate change/global warming (ocean acidification, increased sea temperatures, sea level rise, arctic melting, changing weather patterns), water pollution, plastic pollution (single-use plastic), coastal development, overfishing, whale hunting, fish poaching and more.

Want a Job In Marine Conservation? Do This!

Letting Go Of The Guilt To Do What You Love

As I reach my mid-career point, I often reflect on how my career has impacted the Marine Conservation community. Did I help solve some problems for people? Did I provide the resources that I thought were important for people to succeed in Marine Conservation? These are the questions that I probably should have asked myself 20 .years ago when I was starting my career. I don't have regrets in my career as everything I did lead me to a point in my career where I feel that I am having an impact on Marine Conservation; however, I am not getting paid a career-type wage to do Marine Conservation podcasting and I don't feel guilty about it. You know that guilt. It's the guilty feeling that you get when you think of working in a job/career that might be able to make you money to pay the bills, but it's not in Marine Conservation. The guilt you feel when you think of doing anything but science, the subject that you paid a ton of money to learn for 4, 6, 10 years (and still paying off!). It's the same guilt I felt when I considered leaving the paid career of Marine Conservation to podcast for Marine Conservation and impact more lives than I ever could think about doing in my full-time job. Letting go of the guilt made me happy! Take a listen to the episode for more details on how to let go of that guilt. Does your Marine Conservation job follow what you feel allows you to have an impact on Marine Conservation?

The Low Down On Deep Sea Mining With Dr. Diva Amon

I had a great conversation with Dr. Diva Amon where she gave me an update on the situation with Deep Sea Mining. Diva spoke about being part of the research team that collected baseline data in a Deep Sea Mining Lease Area in the Pacific Ocean. The diversity she and her team found was shocking!

The Low Down On Deep Sea Mining With Dr. Diva Amon

Preparing For Sea Level Rise Can Be Complicated

The City of Del Mar, California is working on a plan to adapt to Sea Level Rise caused by Climate Change. City planners must get the plan approved by the California Coastal Commission in order to implement the plan; however, the Coastal Commission and the City do not agree on the way Del Mar should adapt to Sea Level Rise. Del Mar does not think a managed retreat (where the City would buy properties from homeowners as well as a relocation spot.) will work as their properties are more expensive than the surrounding area and the City could not afford the amount necessary to buy the properties. I wanted to highlight the difficulty of preparing plans like the one discussed during this episode.

In the last episode, I talked about the update from the Ocean Clean Up Project which stated that their prototype was able to collect plastic; however, it also caught a number of ocean animals. The project has received some criticism and with that, there is a lot of bickering going on among conservationists.

Do You Have To Be A Marine Scientist To Be A Marine Conservationist?

Today's episode is focused on an interaction that a friend of mine had on social media recently. Someone said that my friend was not a true scientist if she wasn't collecting data in the field or in a lab. This claim simply isn't true and has no bearing on the issue about which my friend was posting. The fact of the matter is that running an effective Marine Conservation project often requires professionals from all different professionals backgrounds to achieve a common goal. It is unfortunate that some people think otherwise (inside and outside of the industry); however, it is even more important for you to know that it takes all kinds of professionals from across the globe to protect our Oceans. Did you agree with what the person said about scientists? Share your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.

Do You Have To Be A Marine Scientist To Be A Marine Conservationist?

Today's episode is focused on an interaction that a friend of mine had on social media recently. Someone said that my friend was not a true scientist if she wasn't collecting data in the field or in a lab. This claim simply isn't true and has no bearing on the issue about which my friend was posting. The fact of the matter is that running an effective Marine Conservation project often requires professionals from all different professionals backgrounds to achieve a common goal. It is unfortunate that some people think otherwise (inside and outside of the industry); however, it is even more important for you to know that it takes all kinds of professionals from across the globe to protect our Oceans. Did you agree with what the person said about scientists? Share your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.
