People love traveling to Mexico to enjoy the tropical weather to escape winter for a week and the high tourist area called Quintana Roo is a very popular destination. But there is a problem with some of the tourist activities such as dolphin excursions. Tourists can watch captive dolphins perform tricks or even swim with them.
 
Scientists and advocates have been trying to shut the dolphinarium industry down all over the world, but Mexico is home to approximately 10% of the 3000 held in captivity around the world. A recent vote by Mexico's government officials has banned marine mammal captivity which is a great first step in the right direction; however, I am going to talk about why so much more needs to be done to ensure this ban on captivity goes through. In other words, I am not holding my breath.

Tonight was a tough night for me as there was an incident with a parent and the coaching staff of which I am a coach. Not only did it get heated, but it almost turned violent on the parent's part. I haven't coached for a terribly long time, but this is something that has never happened to me. It really makes me rethink coaching and gets me thinking about the work I do on this podcast.
 
I put in the work on this podcast because it makes me happy to talk about the ocean and the benefit is that I hear from listeners that they enjoy it as well. It makes be happy that I can inspire people to change and its why I target people who want to do good for the ocean.
 
Today, I am going to talk about why I love interacting with this audience and work so hard to try to provide information to help people change habits or build habits to live for a better ocean. It's also why I don't target or try to change the minds of people who don't care about helping the ocean.
 
It's the same reason why I love coaching kids with their parents who want to become better players and human beings.

The ocean is in trouble and policy can help solve many of those problems, but there are many challenges to overcome to create or change policy. It is difficult for one organization to create policy no matter how big, therefore, coalitions are necessary to change and/or create the policies that will help save the ocean.
 
I am speaking with Jenna Valente, who is the Director of Advocacy at Healthy Ocean Coalition and a fellow podcaster, to get more information on how her organization helps others in changing policy and advocating for the ocean.

The Alaskan crab fishery was made popular by the TV show, the deadliest catch and it's worth $200 million dollars annually. But the fishery is closed this year because 90% of the population (one billion crabs) disappeared over the past two years. I will be discussing the possible culprit in this episode.

There are more people who are trying to change the way people, companies, and governments change the way they do business to reduce climate change. But the methods of some climate activists are giving the rest of the climate activists and advocates a bad name. These methods need to stop and the people doing this need to focus on more appropriate demonstrations and lobbying. I provide examples of some of the extreme behaviour that is giving the rest of us a bad reputation and what you can focus on going forward.

I grew up reading books on the ocean and I would soak up all of the textbooks that I could find, but we need more books that target the specific segments of the people to help them change their habits for a better ocean. There is a tiny trend happening where books are being targeted toward the general public, but that needs to scale and quickly. I am going to talk about the marine conservation books that speak to me and the public and the types of books that we need in circulation in the near future.

The best thing that we can do to help the ocean is to choose products and services that are good for the environment and companies are making it known that they are doing something to protect the environment. But how can you tell if companies are truly in for the environment? There are companies that are greenwashing, Starbucks for example, for profit. I am going to cover an example of a scientific publisher that is being accused of doing the same thing while publishing scientific articles and striving to contribute to climate projects.

There is a race of innovative projects from organizations and companies to try to clean up the ocean from plastic pollution and some projects are doing a great job, Mr. Trashwheel is a great example. But the organization called the Ocean Clean Up continues to overpromise and underdeliver at the expense of the natural environment and yet the messaging continues to be pushed as the narrative that this project will be able to clean up 90% of the oceans across social media by creators from all over the world. I would like to tell you why their new idea is not good for the environment even with the good intention of cleaning up the ocean.

Marine protected areas work well to protect fisheries and biodiversity if the areas are not fished during protection. But what happens to the fishers during those closures? Fishers could have a tough time finding alternative income during closures in areas where they used to fish to make a living and feed their families. Indonesia may have an interesting way to combat this and might help the ocean in Indonesia. I'm going to tell your their plan and my thoughts so let's start the show.

Watching climate change impacts such as major hurricanes, floods, droughts, wildfires, and ice sheets melting can be overwhelming for anyone, but it's time to act to fight climate change on every level ranging from individual actions to voting at the highest level. In this episode, I am going to talk about how to do more in your local area that needs to be done.

The fall in Ontario is one of my favorite times of the year. It's a time when leaves change into beautiful colors, and the humid air of the summer is replaced with a crisp that is perfect under the sun making the season as close to perfect as possible. But the weather in other places could mean a visit from hurricanes, one after another. We have seen two large hurricanes hit various parts of the eastern seaboard of North America and some people are using this time to blame the victims who lost loved ones, their houses, and more. There is a better way to approach talking about the devastating impacts of climate change and it has to do with timing. In this episode, I am going to talk about how I think we should approach the timing of the climate change discussion.

A heat wave causing an increase in sea surface temperatures in the Mediterranean Sea causes a rapid deterioration in corals that once housed vibrant red and purple coral forests that provided a ton of biodiversity along the southern French, and Spanish coasts, and along the island of Sardinia. The only thing that saves them is the depth in which they reside. We need to talk about it in this episode.
