Blog Profiles: Marine Life Blogs

Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, we select a topic and handful of blogs that do a great job contributing to the conversation. This week’s roundup focuses on a few unique marine life blogs. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet our writers at @BeyondBylines.

Since my housemate signed up for Paramount+, I’ve been spending all of my downtime turning off my brain and watching Spongebob. I would apologize to everyone who lives with me, but they’ve also been watching it.

I’ve written blogs about ocean conservation and diving, so it’s not surprising when I say marine animals are some of my favorite creatures in the world. So it’s astonishing to me that I haven’t had a blog roundup dedicated to them.

Lets dive in.

1. Marine Madness

Marine Madness was founded by marine biologist Harry Baker. He currently serves as a staff writer for Live Science. It has several contributing writers covering several perspectives and its aim is to highlight issues that marine creatures face as our world evolves.

One of the first things that caught my attention is the book club. Since I started working at PRWeb, the amount that I read has greatly diminished (because I’m already reading for 8 hours a day on most days), but I can’t help always wanting to be educated by a book. There’s also an artwork page, which is very neat as well.

2. oceanbites

oceanbites was started as an independent graduate organization at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography. Its goal is to make marine biology and oceanographic research accessible to anyone interested in the ocean (like me).

There’s a glossary page that’s really fantastic (I’ve probably mentioned this before, but it’s worth mentioning again: I have a glossary of post-its stuck on every book I read). The posts also contain an assortment of videos and graphics that explain the topic in a way that really helps readers understand the research.

Posts I enjoyed: The bionic walking octopus, Fresh(water) (P)Rinse of (not)Bel Air: The Decreasing Salinity of the Japan Sea

3. The National Marine Life Center

NMLC is a not-for-profit science and education center in Cape Cod that rehabilitates marine animals for rerelease. They have weekly “Patient Updates” where they talk about the animals currently in the facility and different ways to donate to keep the organization up and running.

Fair warning: a good portion of the blogs focus on parasites, so if you have a weak stomach, you might not want to be eating when you view this blog. Weirdly, that’s something I really like about this blog – I have a lot of experience with my dog getting parasites, so learning about how they impact sea life is interesting to me.

4. MarineBio

David Campbell founded MarineBio with three goals in mind: provide marine education; provide tools for marine scientists; and provide a forum for communication. The website appeals to several different demographics, from students looking to get into marine biology to marine biologists who’ve been working in the field for ages and everyday people that show an interest in ocean conservation and animal welfare.

This blog is very similar to oceanbites as it uses a lot of multimedia to engage with the viewer. It’s also extremely easy to navigate, with the blog broken down into multiple sections. The blog homepage also directs readers to two interesting essays as a kind of introduction of what is to come.
