Rising Tide #107 – The Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Margaret Spring

To celebrate Earth Day (which is 71% ocean) we’re speaking with Margaret Spring, Chief conservation and science officer for the world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, in California. Before coming to the aquarium Margaret was an environmental attorney and a leader at NOAA. Today she oversees the aquarium’s science policy work including on plastic pollution and its extensive Seafood Watch sustainable seafood program. The aquarium is also connected to MBARI, the deep ocean research organization based in Moss Landing. So, let’s take a deep dive into what Margaret is up to.   

‘Rising Tide, the Ocean Podcast’, is a refreshing, irreverent dive into the lives, work, and explorations of some of today’s leading and diverse ocean voices.

Informative, enlightening, and often humorous, it is an invaluable resource for anyone passionate about understanding, enjoying, and protecting our salty blue world.
