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.

    Fishers Battle Government Over Livelihood In Indonesia

    A Waterfront City project in a city in Indonesia is threatening the livelihoods of the local fishing community as the project may destroy important fish habitat and cause the coastal area to be more choppy that has damaged their boats already.

    Shifting Baseline Syndrome: Does It Exist In Coral Reef Science?

    Shifting Baseline Syndrome: Does It Exist In Coral Reef Science?

    Coral Reefs have gone through some big changes over the past 50-60 years and Scientists are worried that today's generation of scientists will have a different perception of what a coral reef will looks like, which will be different from the past. 
    A group of scientists decided to ask a number of coral reef scientists that work in and around the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary to see if Shifting Baseline Syndrome existed in the area.

    Protect The Endangered Species Act

    Protect The Endangered Species Act

    The Endangered Species Act is a successful act that protects a diverse array of plants and animals across the US; however, the US Government wants to roll back the protections by limiting the term habitat to make it difficult to protect species.

    Can The Ecuadorian Government Stop 260 Fishing Boats From Poaching Endangered Species?

    Can The Ecuadorian Government Stop 260 Fishing Boats From Poaching Endangered Species?

    There are 260 Fishing vessels lining up along the border of the Galapagos Marine Reserve ready to poach fish just like a similar incident in 2017 where 300 tonnes of fish were found on a Chinese fishing vessel (most of the fish species were sharks). This is not the first time illegal fishing has happened. I name some other incidents that have happened in other countries.

    Advice For High School Students Who Want To Be A Marine Biologist

    There is nothing like dreaming to become a Marine Biologist. I never stopped thinking about the types of careers I would have in Marine Biology when I was in High School (it was a bit of an obsession). However, if I were to do it all over again, would I change anything I did to get to where I am today? You betchya!!! 
    This episode covers all the advice I would give to High School Students who want to become Marine Biologists.

    How Do You Restore Over 400 Hectares Of Mangroves?

    How Do You Restore Over 400 Hectares Of Mangroves?

    July 26th was the International Day for the Conservation of the Mangrove Ecosystem, so it makes sense that Mangroves are the topic for today's episode. 
    In the year 2000, the longest-lived cyclone destroyed over 400 hectares of mangroves that were crucial to the livelihoods of the people of Xai-Xai, Mozambique. The restoration has been ongoing since and it has its challenges.
