Kelp forests have a number of benefits to the coastal oceans: They provide a habitat for a diverse set of species; they provide food for species; and, they take up carbon dioxide more than land trees. But kelp forests are at risk as a predator that used to be a problem is becoming more of a problem and eating live kelp. We need healthy kelp forests for all of their benefits including reducing climate change. Therefore, it is crucial that we discuss what will help protect them.

I recently did an episode where I interviewed a great colleague and great friend, Dr. Andrew Thaler. At the end of the interview, I asked him what he was up to these days because you never know what Andrew Thaler is up to at any point and time. He let me know that he was spending his time on a climate change committee in his county. I was so proud of him because we had a similar discussion about 5 years ago and he mentioned that he wanted to do something like this. And then he said something that really hit me. He said that local government/committees is where specialists and experts can really make a difference. We are going to talk about why that statement is so profound in this episode.

There seems to be a resurgence of tuna fish advertising as influencers show the benefits of eating tuna and try to bust myths of mercury poisoning and overfishing if you look up government standards you will find that specific tuna is safe to eat, but are the supermarkets that sell them sourcing from the right supplier? Are they making sure the suppliers are sustainably catching tuna and treating their staff right? Over a number of podcasts, I have revealed the tragedies of overfishing on the high seas including transhipping at sea and the use of fisheries slaves. I think you have the right to know if your favorite grocery store is sourcing its tuna from the right companies. Greenpeace recently released a report ranking worldwide grocery stores that sell tuna based on sustainability and human rights. I am going to go over some of those results.

You need to know what's happening in deep-sea mining, or what's not happening in deep-sea mining. I kept hearing different stories about how close deep-sea mining was to becoming a reality. At times it concerned me and at other times I was just thinking that it was never going to happen. Over the past year, things have seemed to progress and you might be seeing more stories in the media about the topic. That is happening for a reason and it's partly due to the work of a small group of people that became a resource to the industry on both sides of the industry. My guest today is here to tell us the biggest things that have happened over the past 13 years. Dr. Andrew Thaler joins the podcast to tell us about his four years as Editor-In-Chief of the Deep-Sea Mining Observer and how it filled a gap in knowledge to the press on the latest stories in the industry.

For most of my life my parents and I bought my clothes from shops in the mall in and around Toronto. We never thought of how the clothes were made and what would happen to them after I grew out of the clothes. Now that I know how wasteful my clothes are, I have been trying to find ways to buy more sustainable clothing, but I haven't had much luck finding something that I can afford or that is truly sustainable. There was always another option: thrifting. It's something that I never did before because I was being superficial. I didn't want to buy second-hand clothes as I thought I was better than that, I guess. I got over my ego this past weekend and went to a local thrift store and I can gladly say I was successful. I am going to tell you how it all went and why I think I stood in my own way to not do something.

I posted a short video on marine mammal captivity on Instagram, Tik Tok, and YouTube Shorts. To be honest, it was an experiment. I knew the video would be a bit controversial as the captivity of marine mammals content always tends to be this way. My goal for the video was not to take a personal stance but to let viewers make their own decision based on the resources I suggested. I got some feedback just as I suspected. Some pro-releasing whales and others pro-captivity. I responded to the comments in all cases and I want to tell you about my experience.

We are now in the decade of the ocean and you may or may not have heard of the term flying around that is supposed to help the oceans and lands and protect biodiversity. The term is 30 x 30. It means 196 nations have pledged to protect 30% of lands and oceans by the year 2030. It's a great goal that can help our environment and the human species from climate change, water pollution, plastic pollution, overfishing, and other human disturbances; however, the number 30 could just mean that politicians will focus on just the quantity and not the quality of the protected areas. The Center of American Progress would like to see a quality-over-quantity scenario and I am going to talk about how where the US needs to focus.

Whale and dolphin captivity is quite a controversial issue as there are people who are advocating for the release of every captive orca, dolphin, seal, and sea lion (along with manatees) to improve their overall health and there are people who think that these animals are treated well in marine parks and offer a great way for humans to make a connection to help save marine mammals. On which side should you fall and how do you make that decision? These are just some of the questions that you may ask yourself when the opportunity presents itself to see an orca or some other marine mammal. I am going to give you some resources that can help you make decisions for yourself so that you can live for a better ocean.

There are some great people in the marine conservation world that have the potential to do some great things in the field of marine science and conservation. They are intelligent, motivated, passionate, and talented in more than just the science/policy/advocacy work. They can communicate in creative ways. Every once in a while, I have the chance to meet these individuals to speak to them about how they can use their talent and creativity to do some great things. However, imposter syndrome sets in. It can stop you in your tracks of putting yourself out there stopping you from getting your message out. I want people to get past their imposter syndrome as I did so I am going to tell you what helped me.

Corals are facing a ton of challenges in the form of human disturbances and the potential loss of corals and coral reefs will devastate 25% of the species that depend on reefs for their survival. But there are efforts to protect and restore populations in the face of challenges such as climate change, water pollution, coastal development, and over-fishing. An organization called the Great Barrier Reef Legacy, based in Australia is working to do a different type of preservation. the organization wants to collect and preserve every species of coral in the Great Barrier Reef along with the genetic diversity of each coral species. The offsite facility that will house the species will act to stabilize their existence in case the wild populations are threatened with extinction and could act as brooding colonies for restoration purposes.

Have you ever thought about whether your marine science/conservation/policy career is having the impact that you want on the ocean? For instance, I turned to podcasting about how to protect the ocean because I wanted to reach out to individual people to tell them about what is happening with the ocean and how they can help. I decided that I would stop working for the government to follow this endeavor and I am not the only one. In today's episode, I speak with Shannon Consentino-Roush about chasing impact throughout her career. Shannon has had quite a career in national and international policy but now works as a Chief Strategic Officer for a start-up company called Finless Foods that offers plant-based and cell-cultured seafood alternatives. We are going to find out what drove her to continue to pivot towards different career choices and how she ended up as the CSO of a start-up.

It seems as though the media salivates any time there is a shark bite event and it's labelled as a shark attack that includes all the horrific details. The story reaffirms the fears many people have of sharks and demonizes them, but there is always a piece of the story missing that could get at the real story. For example, a recent story that is being shared is a potential white shark bite off the coast of Mexico. The headlines and the stories are focusing on where the person was bit, but not on the details of why the person was in the ocean even though there were warnings of an increased presence of sharks. I am going to talk about the real story and discuss why those stories could have better results for conservation.
