Ocean conservancy: how to protect marine species


Guests: Malin Pinksy, Boris Worm

The ocean is at risk for losing many of its species if we don’t do something quickly. Pressures from over-fishing, acidification, warming waters, and ocean industrialization are pushing many ocean plants and animals toward extinction. Today we’ll talk about the threats to marine life, the species most at risk, and what we can do to protect the world’s oceans. Marty’s guests are MALIN PINSKY an assistant professor at the Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences at Rutgers University and BORIS WORM a professor in Marine Conservation Biology at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
