Seasipracy got me thinking of the effects of past conservation documentaries on the conservation of iconic species such as sharks, dolphins, orcas, and sea turtles with respect to their issues of finning, captivity, and plastic pollution, respectively.

However, the recent release and reaction of the public and the scientific community of Seaspiracy led me to think about ways that science communicators should react to controversial conservation documentaries no matter how they are made.

Listen to the episode and let me know what you think.
