This week's news have been fairly depressing, so I thought it would be good to share a great citizen science program called the Great Victorian Fish Count. It's a program where Scuba divers and Snorklers count fish species to help researchers monitor changes in fish populations in and around the coast of the Province of Victoria.

A Brazilian dam operated by Samarco, a mining company, collapsed two weeks ago flooding the Doce Basin with toxic mud leaving over 280,000 people without clean water and killing at least 12 people. The government estimates the clean up will take 30 years and cost 1 billion dollars; however, environmentalists say it will cost 27 billion dollars. It's just another reason to make sure extractive industries like mining and oil/gas need to be held to the highest regulatory authority to avoid the horrible events.

The Marine Mammal Centre is currently home to a record number 85 seal lion pups who washed up on northern California beaches this year, underweight and weak. Today on the podcast I hypothesize why and discuss what you can do about it.

Researchers have found that warming oceans after the last glacial period caused massive dead zones in the Pacific Ocean. The Warming Oceans were similar to the temperatures currently in the North Pacific caused by a warming body of water dubbed the "Blob." Listen to the podcast to find out more and what you can do to stop it.

Marine Planning allows us to plan all the activities that occur in the ocean. Marine planning is absent in many jurisdictions around the world, which is crazy to think when most counties/municipalities, states/provinces and countries have plans for terrestrial areas, both environmental and business. Listen to why I think Marine Planning is important and what you can do add more marine plans in your oceans.

Sea World has been backed into a corner by animal activists and a little documentary called Blackfish; however, the basis of evidence that orcas in captivity have degraded health (physical and mental) is all about science. Sea World understands this and is now trying to discredit the people who are scientific experts on wild orca populations. Listen to the podcast to find out who Sea World is attacking and why.

Driftnets are killing 83% bycatch in a fishery targeting 2 species, according to Todd Steiner in a guest commentary in the Monterey Herald. The state government allows the use of driftnets because the pressure from the commercial fishing industry won't let them stop. Listen to the podcast to find out the details and how many species are being killed that aren't the 2 targeted species.

SeaWorld has caved to outside pressures to stop it's infamous Orca (Killer Whale) shows that they have used as a marketing tool to attract customers for year. SeaWorld attendance dropped 17% last year losing them 3.8 million dollars in one year. SeaWorld officials stated they are moving away from the entertainment shows to focus more on educating the public on Orca habitat, which means they don't plan of releasing the Orcas anytime soon. I provide my opinion in the podcast on the subject as it relates to the available science out there.

The differences in populations sizes are due to cumulative influences on the population. Listen to the podcast to find out which 2.

Coral Reefs in the Pilbara region along the North-West part of Australia are being destroyed by high sea temperatures and predation by a large number of Crown of Thorns Starfish. The combination of Ocean Issues does not allow the corals to recover from an individual issue. The loss of Coral Reefs in this area can have serious impacts on biodiversity and shoreline protection.

Researchers have found evidence of Ocean Acidification affecting Pteropods in the Southern Ocean. Pteropods are an important part of the food web in this area of the world. Ocean Acidification impedes the ability for the Pteropods to use calcium to build there snail-like shells.

Happy Birthday to my daughter Taya, whose insatiable thirst for knowledge continues to inspire me to provide Ocean Conservation Information to her, her sister, and you for a better Ocean. Happy Monday! Today, I talk about a recent article where a host for a popular BBC program called Autumnwatch said Wildlife TV does not help conservation. I talk about why he said it and why I agree. I also let you in on a new project I've been working on for the past 2 months that will help solve the problem.
