Reef restoration in paradise (includes podcast)

In “Paws, Pets, and Prices,” we dive deep into the challenges of the rising cost of veterinary medicine and the critical shortage of veterinarians. Our mission is to inform, educate, and inspire action within our pet-loving community by exploring the complex issues, stories, and solutions related to these pressing concerns.

Episode 1

The Reef Restoration Podcast is where you can take a deep dive into the captivating ocean and focus on the underwater ecosystem of the coral reef. Coral reefs are one of the most unique and complex environments on our planet. Coral Reefs have not only become essential for marine animals but have also become an essential service for society. 

In this podcast episode, Angel Martinez, marine biologist, and researcher of coral reefs explains what coral reefs are and why they are important to our society. He also discusses the predators of coral reefs, which are becoming bleached and dying rapidly in South Florida, as well as what we can do to help protect these delicate ecosystems.

Episode 2

The incredible underwater ecosystems known as coral reefs are home to thousands of different species of fish, crabs, and other creatures. Unfortunately, due to pollution, overfishing, and climate change, they are in jeopardy and have been diminishing in recent years.

Alejandro Parisca, researcher, and television producer, discusses not only the degradation of reefs by private interests, but their absence in many atlases and national inventories.
