The Marine Conservation Happy Hour is a podcast that looks at the many different sides of Marine Science and Conservation in an informal setting - a during a pub Happy Hour, chatting casually over a few (or more) drinks. The show is co-hosted by Andrew Lewin, @Craken_McCraic, and @DrScarlettSmash. Everyone is a marine scientist who is passionate about the Ocean, marine mammals (whales, seals, dolphins, porpoises, polar bears and more), sharks and other fish, invertebrates (especially squid & octopuses because they are cool), and other marine biology things that live under the sea. Join us as we gossip about, for example, how shows like Game of Thrones are similar to Marine Conservation, the sex lives of sea creatures, hot marine science & conservation topics of the week and learn about the challenges of attaining a marine biology or conservation career.

    Fifth Ocean

    Fifth Ocean

    How many oceans do we have on Earth? In other words, what exactly is the defition of an "ocean"- where do you draw the lines on a map? Since the 80s, we've been taught that there are 4 oceans on our planet, but mapmakers are now officially recognizing the Southern Ocean as one of 5 oceans on Earth.

Science Nerd👩🏽‍🔬 ,

Omg so good

Ok I love this! I recommend it for people who like the ocean and also people who like to listen to other people being hilarious! But when I listened to the episode about if you made a movie about ocean problems I kinda wish there were sea turtles. Such a good podcast! Keep up the good work! 😃😃😃😃🐋🐋🐋🐋

5 Star! Future Episode Idea??

LOVE this podcast! This really helps me stay in tune with my passion of marine biology despite being a few hours from the ocean.

Wondering if it would be possible to shed some light on sustainable, eco friendly ideas for people who want to travel/scuba/explore marine biology while doing so with a conservation cautious mind?

I want to plan a few trips next year, but don’t want to be that ignorant tourist who says she loves marine biology but is harming it in the process of connecting with her passion. Any suggestions or tips for traveling would be greatly appreciated!

YAS!

Very entertaining and fun. I am not a scientist but I love the environment and I want to know what is going on, what I can do to help, and Andrew, Smash and Cracken bring so much information to the table. Keep it up guys!
