Speak Up For The Ocean Blue

The International Seabed Authority, which is responsible for overseeing the development of deep-sea mining in international waters AND protecting the ocean met to negotiate a set of regulations to determine if deep-sea mining can proceed. But scientists and environmentalists involved in the process are worried about transparency and revealing that the process is not transparent at all.   In this episode of the Speak Up For The Ocean Blue podcast, I will provide you with more information on the process and what it could mean for the deep sea.   Link to article:   Sign up to...

Speak Up For The Ocean Blue

When I speak to people about their careers in Marine Science and Conservation, I can sense how badly they want a job and build their careers. It's hard to describe how I can notice it, but if you have it then go after it. But there are many of you who lack the motivation to fight for a position to get what you want. You have to show that you have a passion for this field in order to be successful.   In this episode of Speak Up For The Ocean Blue podcast, I am going to tell you what you can do to show the hiring managers that you have a passion for Marine Science and Conservation so you...

Speak Up For The Ocean Blue

A news article revealed that Kylie Jenner uses her private jet to fly 17 minutes to do daily chores such as grocery shopping to avoid traffic in LA. A sustainability firm based in the UK dug deeper to produce a list of the worst private jet offenders that were celebrities, but are we putting the blame in the right place? Celebrities are easy targets to receive hate; however, there was a report published in 2017 that revealed that 100 companies around the world are responsible for 70% of the contribution to climate change.   In this episode of the Speak Up For The Ocean Blue Podcast, I am...

Speak Up For The Ocean Blue

A Greenland shark was found in the Caribbean Sea, surprising the science world and it begs the overall question: Have they always been there? But more research is needed to answer a number of questions. It also reminds us all that we know nothing of the deep sea and maybe we should hold off on opening up deep-sea mining since we don't really know the damage we could cause.   In this episode of the Speak Up For The Ocean Blue podcast, I am going to run through some of the questions I have on the Greenland shark distribution topic and provide my thoughts on why this should really halt any...

Speak Up For The Ocean Blue

Three episodes ago, I discussed how to speak up for the ocean if you are not a scientist. I suggested following specific scientists on social media to get accurate and recent science and conservation information. I had a few people contact me over Instagram to ask if I know where they could get more information on science and conservation in their area. A great question indeed and that seems like it could be hard to find anyone.   In this episode of the Speak Up For The Ocean Blue Podcast, I will tell you how you can find out about local science and conservation issues.   Sign up...

Speak Up For The Ocean Blue

Every year I go into Shark Week with a positive mindset in hope that it will provide some great programs and some great cinematography and I would like to hope that it won't play into the fear-mongering, but that was not the case for the first news piece that I saw from CNN (who owns Discovery). A clear promotional video starts off with fear of shark sightings and bites then into one of the dumbest things a person can do when being around a white shark. I will tell you why it was so dumb in this upcoming rant.   Link to video:   Sign up to find out about the audio Ocean...

Speak Up For The Ocean Blue

Shark week is back and over this week you will see some great shots of different species of sharks and some interesting behaviours, but you probably won't see much talk on the conservation of sharks and you might hear some misinformation on the species. You can take advantage of Shark Week by informing your followers (and maybe new followers) on shark conservation and where we need to focus on to increase shark awareness.

Speak Up For The Ocean Blue

Science plays an important part in understanding the trends in the ocean whether they are positive or negative and scientists also are critical in communicating their work so people can be aware of the trends, but people think that only scientists can talk about science and that is not true; therefore, by the end of this episode of the Speak Up For The Ocean Blue, I hope to convince you that you can speak up for the ocean too and give you steps that you can take to make sure you do it correctly.   Follow/Subscribe to Beyond Jaws: Apple Podcasts: Spotify: Website:   Sign up to...

Speak Up For The Ocean Blue

The Mississippi Delta is one powerful river that drains a large portion of the rivers in the US and two provinces in Canada, yet there are few people who know how powerful the river can be and how the land at the mouth of the Mississippi changes depending on the action that is taken by human alteration. Hakai Magazine wrote a great article on how the Mississippi River is changing and what can be done to save the land, the shrimpers, and the bottlenose dolphins that inhabitat of the ever-changing Mississippi Delta.   Link to article:   Sign up to find out about the audio Ocean...

Sharks have had a bad reputation for decades that have lead to their harm and lack of protection for a long time, but more videos and articles are surfacing that include love for sharks. But could all of this love be dangerous for shark populations as well?   Sign up to find out about the audio Ocean Conservation Careers members group:   Facebook Group: Connect with Speak Up For Blue: Website:  Instagram:  Twitter:

The deep freeze in Texas is not only affecting Texans all over the state, but it's always affecting Sea Turtles. Animal rescuers made up of government scientists, organizations, and volunteers rescued 4,750 Green Sea Turtles that were affected by the deep freezing effects of the cold snap.

The cold temperatures affect Sea Turtles as they can render them immobile. The Sea Turtles can't swim to the surface to get air and could eventually drown. 

The efforts from everyone that participated in the rescue potential saved the population of Threatened Sea Turtles.
