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.

64,000 Sea Turtles Nesting In Great Barrier Reef

Finally! I have some great news to share. There was a study that used a drone to count Green Sea Turtles as they waiting along the shoreline of an island in the Great Barrier Reef. Around 64,000 nesting sea turtles were counted (the largest number in a long time). It's a conservation win that used new technology. Check out the details by listening to the podcast.

Increase Of Illegal Trade Coming Out Of South America

It's difficult to stop the illegal trade of endangered animals during "normal" times. Now, try and stop the same trade during a pandemic when there are fewer resources to inspect crates that travel all over the world. Turtles, Sharks, and Totoaba have all paid the price. It's something we need to discuss.

Be More Than A Marine Biologist

Being a Marine Biologist is THE best! People love hearing that you are a Marine Biologist when you are introduced at a gathering of some sort. You become more interesting because not many people know Marine Biologists. However, we sometimes take on the persona of being a Marine Biologist too much where we don't allow ourselves to become something else as well. And that can lead to burning out. Here is a PSA on how to be more than just a Marine Biologist. Do you dive into your work too much? Share your experience in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.

Can Sharks And Surfers Live In Harmony On Reunion Island?

There was a great news video on shark incidents on Reunion Island that showed the complexities of shark conservation when multiple ocean stakeholders are involved. The surfing community wants something done about the sharks, the environmentalists want to protect them and the government wants to appease everyone (but will probably make everyone mad at the same time).

Keeping Carbon Dioxide In The Ground Using Mangroves

Mangrove conservation is a focus along coastal areas in tropical countries that would like to keep Carbon Dioxide in the ground. Mangrove forests keep more than 3 times the amount of CO2 in the ground when compared to terrestrial tropical forests. So Mangroves becomes a focus when we are doing everything we can to keep CO2 from getting into the atmosphere. A study by a PEW Marine Fellow, Octavio Aburdo-Oropez, looked at the cost savings from Climate Change consequences if mangrove conservation was a focus. Listen to the episode for the results.

Changing The Shark Conservation Narative

Have you ever wondered why we only hear about shark finning when we discuss Shark Conservation? It seems to be the main narrative whenever you hear about Sharks and protecting them. However, there is more to Shark Conservation than finning. Dr. Catherine MacDonald and Dr. David Shiffman are here to discuss the ramifications of only talking about one conservation effort to protect Sharks. Check out their new paper: https://www.cell.com/iscience/fulltext/S2589-0042(20)30390-4 Tweet about it: https://twitter.com/WhySharksMatter/status/1273271361570590723 Discuss the paper with David and Catherine on Twitter: David: @WhySharksMatter: https://twitter.com/WhySharksMatter Catherine: @dr_catmac: https://twitter.com/dr_catmac Let us know what you thought of the episode in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Community: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group Check out the new Speak Up For The Ocean Blue Podcast App: http://www.speakupforblue.com/app. Speak Up For Blue Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/speakupforblue/ Speak Up For Blue Twitter: https://twitter.com/SpeakUpforBlue Check out the Shows on the Speak Up For Blue Network: Marine Conservation Happy Hour Apple Podcasts: https://apple.co/2k4ZB3x Spotify:https://spoti.fi/2kkEElk Madame CuriosityApple Podcasts: https://apple.co/2xUlSax Spotify: https://spoti.fi/2V38QQ1 ConCiencia Azul: Apple Podcasts:https://apple.co/2k6XPio Spotify:https://spoti.fi/2k4ZMMf Dugongs & Seadragons: Apple Podcasts:https://apple.co/2lB9Blv Spotify:https://spoti.fi/2lV6THt Environmental Studies & Sciences Apple Podcasts:https://apple.co/2lx86oh Spotify:https://spoti.fi/2lG8LUh Marine Mammal Science: Apple Podcasts:https://apple.co/2k5pTCI Spotify:https://spoti.fi/2k1YyRL Projects For Wildlife Podcast: Apple Podcasts: https://apple.co/2Oc17gy Spotify: https://spoti.fi/37rinWz Ocean Science RadioApple Podcast: https://apple.co/3chJMfA Spotify: https://spoti.fi/3bnkP18

Deep Sea Biodiversity Affected By Microplastic Hotspots

An article in Science Magazine (link below) shows how deep-sea bottom currents are concentrating microplastics in specific areas. Unfortunately, these areas are the same areas that are high in biodiversity. The biodiverse hot spots are diverse because of the same current systems that create the microplastic hot spots. The bottom line is that we all need to reduce our plastic consumption.

Let's Focus On The Long Game Of Conservation

A race for the cure to end a global pandemic could affect populations of horseshoe crabs. How do horseshoe crabs tie into finding a vaccine you ask? Well, it's in their blood. The blue blood act as an indicator of the presence of contaminants during vaccine trials. The crab's blood will coagulate if there are enough contaminants. The problem is that in order to use the blood, you have to drain the crabs of more than half of their blood. the process kills thousands during mass crab blood draws. The good news is that there is an alternative; however, the bad news is that the US pharmaceutical agency is not willing to use it. Therefore, they continue to unsustainably harvest horseshoe crab blood. The USP is targeting the short game, but conservation is a long game.

Keeping Carbon Dioxide In The Ground Using Mangroves

Changing The Shark Conservation Narative

Have you ever wondered why we only hear about shark finning when we discuss Shark Conservation? It seems to be the main narrative whenever you hear about Sharks and protecting them. However, there is more to Shark Conservation than finning. Dr. Catherine MacDonald and Dr. David Shiffman are here to discuss the ramifications of only talking about one conservation effort to protect Sharks. Check out their new paper: https://www.cell.com/iscience/fulltext/S2589-0042(20)30390-4 Tweet about it: https://twitter.com/WhySharksMatter/status/1273271361570590723 Discuss the paper with David and Catherine on Twitter: David: @WhySharksMatter: https://twitter.com/WhySharksMatter Catherine: @dr_catmac: https://twitter.com/dr_catmac Let us know what you thought of the episode in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Community: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group Check out the new Speak Up For The Ocean Blue Podcast App: http://www.speakupforblue.com/app. Speak Up For Blue Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/speakupforblue/ Speak Up For Blue Twitter: https://twitter.com/SpeakUpforBlue Check out the Shows on the Speak Up For Blue Network: Marine Conservation Happy Hour Apple Podcasts: https://apple.co/2k4ZB3x Spotify:https://spoti.fi/2kkEElk Madame CuriosityApple Podcasts: https://apple.co/2xUlSax Spotify: https://spoti.fi/2V38QQ1 ConCiencia Azul: Apple Podcasts:https://apple.co/2k6XPio Spotify:https://spoti.fi/2k4ZMMf Dugongs & Seadragons: Apple Podcasts:https://apple.co/2lB9Blv Spotify:https://spoti.fi/2lV6THt Environmental Studies & Sciences Apple Podcasts:https://apple.co/2lx86oh Spotify:https://spoti.fi/2lG8LUh Marine Mammal Science: Apple Podcasts:https://apple.co/2k5pTCI Spotify:https://spoti.fi/2k1YyRL Projects For Wildlife Podcast: Apple Podcasts: https://apple.co/2Oc17gy Spotify: https://spoti.fi/37rinWz Ocean Science RadioApple Podcast: https://apple.co/3chJMfA Spotify: https://spoti.fi/3bnkP18

Change OUr Behaviour To Live For A Better Ocean

Deep Sea Biodiversity Affected By Microplastic Hotspots

An article in Science Magazine (link below) shows how deep-sea bottom currents are concentrating microplastics in specific areas. Unfortunately, these areas are the same areas that are high in biodiversity. The biodiverse hot spots are diverse because of the same current systems that create the microplastic hot spots. The bottom line is that we all need to reduce our plastic consumption. Link to Article: https://science.sciencemag.org/content/368/6495/1140.full Do you ever have conversations with your family and friends about reducing plastic use?

Let's Focus On The Long Game Of Conservation

A race for the cure to end a global pandemic could affect populations of horseshoe crabs. How do horseshoe crabs tie into finding a vaccine you ask? Well, it's in their blood. The blue blood act as an indicator of the presence of contaminants during vaccine trials. The crab's blood will coagulate if there are enough contaminants. The problem is that in order to use the blood, you have to drain the crabs of more than half of their blood. the process kills thousands during mass crab blood draws. The good news is that there is an alternative; however, the bad news is that the US pharmaceutical agency is not willing to use it. Therefore, they continue to unsustainably harvest horseshoe crab blood. The USP is targeting the short game, but conservation is a long game. Link to Article: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/race-coronavirus-vaccine-runs-horseshoe-crab-blood-180975048/ Do you think we should continue to harvest blood directly from horseshoe crabs, or should we use the al...
