We are entering the 6th mass extinction. When I tell people about the mass extinction, people are not too worried. I don't think they realize that we are already starting to see the effects of the mass extinction and that the planet has gone through this before, but there is one difference. The major difference is the fact that the Permian extincti…
 
The Faroe Islands government has announced that they will review their regulations of the dolphin cull after some whalers and critics thought that the last cull of 1400 white-sided dolphins was too numerous to use all of the meat. The current regulations that I mentioned during the last episode raised a number of questions about how quantitative ar…
 
There was a cull of 1400 white-sided dolphins in the Faroe Islands recently has some people wanting to know if it was legal. Whaling of pilot whales and other small cetaceans is legal in the Faroe Islands as the local community relies on whale meat as their primary protein source. The small island autonomous territory has been culling whales for ce…

The Canadian federal election is less than a week away before we find out who will lead Canada into a very different world than it was 18 months ago. There are many predominant issues at hand in this election such as the COVID pandemic, the economy, reconciliation with Indigenous communities across Canada, and climate change. I am very interested i…
 
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. Check ou…

This week’s episode is the recording of the Internship Equality webinar co-hosted by the Whale and Dolphin Conservation and the Society for Marine Mammalogy Diversity & Inclusion committee.

All of the talks around protecting 30% of the world's oceans by the year 2030 have really put a focus on the quality of MPAs that exist and that will be designated in the future. MPA design and implementation are unique around the world, especially if a country or region is new to the process. Angelo Villagomez and Johnny Briggs join me on the podc…
 
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!

The MCHH crew go through the details of the "success" model for science communication, from the book "Made to Stick".

I have been reflecting on the subject of collaboration as I work on a special project for this podcast (the project will be released next week!). Collaboration is a term and major theme of the project; however, over the past 6 years I noticed that people in Marine Science and Conservation are more competitive than they are collaborative. Now it cou…

The revenue …
 
COVID caused a lot of disruption in the form of shutdowns, but something that was always available in North America was grocery stores. However, there were some small island states such as Cape Eleuthera that did not know if their food was coming via shipping boats. Luckily it was only temporary. During that time, people looked to the sea to provid…
