How you can use the example of baby sea turtles as a way to explain climate change to your family and friends Explaining climate change is not a simple exercise, especially when there is so much misinformation floating around the web, and some times the material can be complex to explain, but there are ways to explain how climate change is affecting an iconic animal such as the sea turtle to get people's attention.   In this episode, I am going to explain how baby sea turtles can be used to explain how climate change is affecting animals in the ocean.   Link to Article: https://bit.ly/3dvGtXw   Sign up to find out about the audio Ocean Conservation Careers members group: https://bit.ly/38ak7Z8   Facebook Group: https://bit.ly/3NmYvsI Connect with Speak Up For Blue: Website: https://bit.ly/3fOF3Wf Instagram: https://bit.ly/3rIaJSG Twitter: https://bit.ly/3rHZxpc

Risso's Dolphins herd pilot whales away from their habitat in the Azores Cetaceans (whales, dolphins, and porpoises) are beautiful creatures and they display a number of different behaviours that we often like to watch. The behaviours are usually friendly ones such as bow riding or breaching the water giving us a spectacular show. But cetaceans are wild animals and being in the wild means every species needs to survive that is why researchers were not surprised after observing a pod of Risso's dolphins herding away a pod of long-finned pilot whales to protect the food in their habitat.   In this episode of the Speak Up For The Ocean Blue podcast, I am going to discuss the incident and why it's important to know why these cetaceans are so protective.   Link to Article: https://bit.ly/3C4r4b2   Sign up to find out about the audio Ocean Conservation Careers members group: https://bit.ly/38ak7Z8   Facebook Group: https://bit.ly/3NmYvsI Connect with Speak Up For Blue: Website: https://bit.ly/3fOF3Wf Instagram: https://bit.ly/3rIaJSG Twitter: https://bit.ly/3rHZxpc
Is Canada's single use plastic ban enough to reduce plastic waste, Oceana Canada thinks we can do more Canada just passed a law to ban 6 types of single-use plastics across the nation over the next 3 years in an unprecedented move to curb plastic waste, but some people think that Canada can do more, including Oceana. I am going to talk about how Oceana Canada thinks Canada can reduce plastic even more and I want to ask the question, is it too much?   Link to campaign: https://act.oceana.org/page/108844/action/2   Sign up to find out about the audio Ocean Conservation Careers members group: https://bit.ly/38ak7Z8   Facebook Group: https://bit.ly/3NmYvsI Connect with Speak Up For Blue: Website: https://bit.ly/3fOF3Wf Instagram: https://bit.ly/3rIaJSG Twitter: https://bit.ly/3rHZxpc
Transparency an issue at Deep-Sea mining meetings in Jamaica, says scientists 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: https://bit.ly/3oNRQfU   Sign up to find out about the audio Ocean Conservation Careers members group: https://bit.ly/38ak7Z8   Facebook Group: https://bit.ly/3NmYvsI Connect with Speak Up For Blue: Website: https://bit.ly/3fOF3Wf Instagram: https://bit.ly/3rIaJSG Twitter: https://bit.ly/3rHZxpc
You must show this one personality trait if you want a job in Marine Science and Conservation 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 will get hired and start your career down the right path.   Sign up to find out about the audio Ocean Conservation Careers members group: https://bit.ly/38ak7Z8   Facebook Group: https://bit.ly/3NmYvsI Connect with Speak Up For Blue: Website: https://bit.ly/3fOF3Wf Instagram: https://bit.ly/3rIaJSG Twitter: https://bit.ly/3rHZxpc
Are celebrities contributing too much Greenhouse gases via their private jet flights? 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 going to discuss why we should be tackling both and think about the way we need to change how we do business in the future.   Link to article: https://bit.ly/3cUQMEo   Sign up to find out about the audio Ocean Conservation Careers members group: https://bit.ly/38ak7Z8   Facebook Group: https://bit.ly/3NmYvsI Connect with Speak Up For Blue: Website: https://bit.ly/3fOF3Wf Instagram: https://bit.ly/3rIaJSG Twitter: https://bit.ly/3rHZxpc
Do Greenland sharks frequent the Caribbean Sea? 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 plans of deep-sea mining.    Link to Article: https://bit.ly/3zYFbxn   Sign up to find out about the audio Ocean Conservation Careers members group: https://bit.ly/38ak7Z8   Facebook Group: https://bit.ly/3NmYvsI Connect with Speak Up For Blue: Website: https://bit.ly/3fOF3Wf Instagram: https://bit.ly/3rIaJSG Twitter: https://bit.ly/3rHZxpc
Where to find local scientists to follow to find out information on science and conservation issues 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 to find out about the audio Ocean Conservation Careers members group: https://bit.ly/38ak7Z8   Facebook Group: https://bit.ly/3NmYvsI Connect with Speak Up For Blue: Website: https://bit.ly/3fOF3Wf Instagram: https://bit.ly/3rIaJSG Twitter: https://bit.ly/3rHZxpc
Discovery puts man in a clear plastic tub in the ocean; attracts big white shark; and, is surprised when the shark bites the clear tub to grab the human 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: https://youtu.be/j0chL87gPag   Sign up to find out about the audio Ocean Conservation Careers members group: https://bit.ly/38ak7Z8   Facebook Group: https://bit.ly/3NmYvsI Connect with Speak Up For Blue: Website: https://bit.ly/3fOF3Wf Instagram: https://bit.ly/3rIaJSG Twitter: https://bit.ly/3rHZxpc
