I feel as though this Ocean Talk Friday Episode with co-host Nathan Johnson is a special one as we covered more species than we normally do, which is fun for us because it brings us back to basic Marine Science and Conservation.

Here are the topics we discussed:
1) Video of a rare deep-sea Chimera (looks like a shark);
2) Ducks in the Andes have a unique adaptation for survival (YES! You read Ducks!);
3) Crab species found at Hydrothermal Vents in Deep Sea clean each other (but they are cannibalistic!); and,
4) New law restricting Seafood imports that can't prove they don't harm marine mammals.

The Ocean Conservancy is a great organization, so I was happy when a Speak Up For Blue Community Member names Liz Cunningham tweeted me the link the a recent blog post the Ocean Conservancy published as Liz thought it would be a great article to discuss on the podcast. Well, she was right! 

I discuss their 4 Keys to good Marine Planning and how it affects us in reality.

A few weeks ago the internet was exposed to a video where a polar bear was petting a dog. Most people said "Aw, that is so cute!" However, I was saying "Oh, look at the polar bear playing with potential food!"

I had to have Dr. Thea Bechshoft on the podcast to tell us why the polar bear was exhibiting this type of behaviour and what was affecting their populations (hint: it's Climate Change!)

Biodiversity is the key to the stability of habitats and ecosystems as we know it. It's so important that you will hear scientists talk about biodiversity and how we need to protect it; however, the public may not completely understand the importance of biodiversity, which could lead to it not being protected. 

I explain why biodiversity is important and how it can influence all of the things upon which we rely on the ocean (i.e. fisheries, tourism, natural resources like oil and gas).

Nathan and I go in on a tweet that the House Science Committee sent out supporting a non-fact based story from none other than the infamous Breitbart website. The blow back on Twitter was brutal as many people saw right through the tweet as nothing but a political stance without any scientific evidence. However, could this type of "fake" news influence a portion of the US population that support the newly elected administration. Only time will tell.

We cover this story and the following:
1) Protecting biodiversity in the Ocean to support South Pacific tourism;
2) Tracking missing shipping containers from trans-ocean freighters; and,
3) Why seabirds can't stop eating plastic.

We are about to enter the next four years of a Donal Trump led Republican government administration with many questions. One of those questions is whether Donald Trump will cancel President Obama's executive orders to expand two existing Marine Monuments and designate a new Marine Monument.

John Davis, who is the President of MARE and Project Supervisor of Open Channels (That houses MPA News and MEAM), wrote an article in MPA News to discuss whether President-Elect Donald Trump has the authority and the will to cancel the Monument Executive Orders.

I invited John onto the show not only to talk about his article, but to discuss how he established some of the best information sharing products in the Ocean Conservation Field.
