New 'Naked Scientists' series investigates our oceans
Date:8/24/2010

The University of Cambridge's "Naked Scientists" are launching a new series of podcasts this week entitled "Naked Oceans".

These monthly, half-hour podcasts, funded by the Save Our Seas Foundation (SOSF), investigate various topics of ocean science and conservation. They are presented by Helen Scales and Sarah Castor-Perry, both members of the Naked Scientists team and Alumni of the University of Cambridge's Department of Zoology.

With the help of expert guests, they aim to make people aware of the importance of vital ocean environments and the threats they are under. As well as looking at the better known habitats and species of the ocean, Naked Oceans plans to spotlight some of the often overlooked but equally important aspects of marine life.

The shows are aimed at anyone with an interest in marine nature, from children to scientists. The podcasts are available for free on itunes, on the Naked Oceans and Save Our Seas websites.

With 80% of the world fisheries now overexploited or depleted, and more than 400 oceanic "dead zones" where there is no oxygen or life in part due to waste water and farm runoff, marine conservation is increasingly important. At present less than 1% of the ocean is protected from human activity despite of our reliance on it for food, livelihoods and even climate regulation. Naked Oceans aims to bring the situation to the public attention and offers listeners practical advice on what they can do to help ocean conservation.

Episodes include discussions with top researchers and rundowns of the latest news in marine science and conservation. There are also field reports and other highlights include the "critter of the months" feature, in which an expert must answer the question "If you were a marine critter, which would you be, and why?"

Listeners are encouraged to send in questions to the show via email, Facebook and twitter and are also invited to go on the special "Marine Scie
