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.

    Why are Manatees Dying?

    More manatees have died in the first half of 2021 than any other year in Florida history. The MCHH crew talk about where and why this is happening and what can be done about it.

    The Dolphins of Barataria Bay, South of New Orleans

    The Dolphins of Barataria Bay, South of New Orleans

    Before Hurricane Ida, the MCHH crew visited New Orleans for work (and perhaps a little fun). While they were there, they talked to Dr. Naomi Rose about the population of dolphins that live in Barataria Bay. Along the way, we discussed the history of changing land and water use in southern Louisiana and the consequences of human activities.

    New Orleans and pollution

    New Orleans and pollution

    We went to New Orleans for work (and for fun), to evaluate sustainability. We love this city and do not recommend that people stay away! But we talk about some things that the city could do to improve sustainability.

    A successful model for Science Communication

    A successful model for Science Communication

    The MCHH crew go through the details of the "success" model for science communication, from the book "Made to Stick". It's a very simple model (and acronym!) that can be broadly applied to many communication and outreach projects as well as conservation campaigns.

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!
