Ocean Oculus brings you science & stories from the sea (and occasionally from the other 30% of the Earth)

Behind Ocean Oculus is Samantha Andrews – a marine biologist/ecologist and experienced science communicator.

I believe that a healthy ocean and sustainable future can be achieved by working together to find actionable solutions.

I am a marine conservation biologist/ecologist who is fascinated by those mobile marine critters that travel throughout the ocean. Whether they are migratory or nomadic, we can use spatial ecology and movement ecology to understand more about mobile species, and ultimately manage our interactions with them better than we are. What really gets me excited is the idea of dynamic ocean management – using as near to real time data as possible to provide conservation benefits and/or improve fishery management, and marine protected area networks to enhance and protect species at vulnerable places, and at vulnerable life stages.

When I’m not busy doing my own science, I don my science communicator/engager hat and can be found talking to people or writing about the ocean, its inhabitants, and marine science in all its splendor.
