SWANsounds, the podcast by the Sustainable Water Network

In each episode of SWANsounds, we take a close-up look at the important work our member organisations are doing to engage with policy and protect water quality. Our latest episode is ‘Irish seaweed: time-honoured traditions and new appetites’. It features Coordinator Karin Dubsky of Coastwatch, and dives deep into the complex world of seaweed ecosystems, harvesters, and the regulations needed to protect both as demand for this resource skyrockets. You can listen in your browser or in iTunes here.

For more, check out our pilot episode, ‘The Forgotten Pollutant Decimating Whale and Dolphin Populations‘, in which we talked to Dr. Simon Berrow, chief science officer and acting CEO of the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group, about a category of pollutants banned in the 80’s which are leaching out of landfills and into marine environments.
