Nathan and I chat about how California is cracking down of MPA violators; How Ocean Fronts attract seabirds; how philantropy plays a role in Ocean Conservation; and, how deep-sea bacteria can help reduce Climate Change effects
Nathan and I are back together again to chat about some of the most interesting stories this week. Here are the stories that we discussed:
1) California will be giving out minor tickets for MPA boundary layers;
2) Ocean fronts attract seabirds looking for food and that can help manage coastal seabirds;
3) Philanthropy is focusing on Ocean Conservation (Yay!); and,
4) A researcher discovered how deep-sea bacteria can reduce climate change effects.

Today we discussed the following:
- The L.A. Times reports on how California is cracking down on illegal fishing: “Despite resistance from fishing industries, governments have increasingly pushed for MPAs in response to growing threats of widespread extinction of various fish and other marine species. A recent study published in Science magazine found that most threatened are larger marine species, such as tuna, sharks and sea turtles. “
- Foraging seabirds use oceanic fronts as an efficient means to forage for food, according to an international study that could help safeguard the future of protected species. As Science Daily tells us.
- Inside Philanthropy tells us about: “Philanthropy’s Part in a Flurry of Global Ocean Protection Commitments“
- MacArthur winner Victoria Orphan showed how deep-sea microbes keep greenhouse gas out of the atmosphere. The San Diego native has always felt a deep connection to the sea. As a kid, she had her bedroom wall painted blue like the ocean; she and her friends added fish and — near the ceiling — the bottom of a boat. The effect was of living in a human-sized aquarium.
