Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego is launching "Wavelengths," a new video series on YouTube that highlights the cutting-edge research happening at Scripps. Each episode highlights a Scripps scientist and their field of expertise, covering topics raging from the deep sea to glaciology.
The series is hosted by Scripps Oceanography alumna Kate Furby, who not only has an extensive background in science but also in media, including an AAAS fellowship at the Washington Post in 2018, and through her own production company Tiny Beaker.
The first episode features marine ecologist Octavio Aburto and his work on Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), fisheries, and coastal habitats. For the past two decades, Aburto has been working in Cabo Pulmo, a small marine reserve in Baja California Sur, Mexico, where conservation efforts have allowed fish to replenish and recover, benefiting the ocean environment and the economy.
