This year, during Science Online 2012 I asked 8 marine scientists and ocean advocates the following question: What issues in marine science and conservation would you like to see discussed more in the coming year? The responses ranged from protecting coral reefs to developing better bioinformatic tools.
Watch their answers below.
There’s still a week left in the Science Bloggers Donors Choose challenge and we’re short of the $50,000 goal. So if you haven’t yet, head on over to our Donors Choose giving page and make a donation. No matter how small, every dollar helps.
Can’t make the donation? That’s ok, too. We’re offering a $50 prize donated to Donors Choose in your name for the best marine themed Halloween costume! Competition is fierce. Submit a picture of you in costume for a chance to win. Contest ends tomorrow night.
Didn’t dress as something marine for Halloween? That’s still ok! Veteran Science Blogger Christie Wilcox is a finalist for a $10,000 blogging scholarship, but she needs your help! Head on over to the contest, check out all the finalists, and vote for the one you think is best. Southern Fried Science enthusiastically supports Christie Wilcox.
So today, do something for the future of science, or go for the hat trick and do all three.
