Oceancast looks at the issues facing our seas and offers advice & tips on how we can all make changes in our daily lives that will help ease the pressures on our ocean. It will introduce you to experts in their field from the Marine Conservation Society as well as special guests who love the sea and love talking about it! This is not a science podcast, it’s a passion podcast and we hope you’ll join us on a voyage of discovery.

Ocean Ambassador Fernando Montano & Friends

Royal Ballet soloist, and Marine Conservation Society Ocean Ambassador, Fernando Montano, has already done some amazing work for the charity and now he presents the first Oceancast. In this episode Fernando talks to adventurer, journalist, documentary maker and fellow Ambassador, Simon Reeve, about his travels and the impact he’s seen first-hand of plastic on the ocean. He meets another Ocean Ambassador, Miranda Krestovnikoff, wildlife presenter on the BBC One Show and passionate diver in UK seas, and world record breaking Welsh hurdler Colin Jackson who lives beside the sea in Cardiff. Fernando also catches up with West End violinist, Jonathan Hill, who’s played on a violin made out of driftwood. With Marine Conservation Society staff also dropping in for a chat, it’s a soothing and inspiring listen - just like the ocean itself!
