Speak Up For The Ocean Blue

Speak Up For The Ocean Blue

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.
