This is Ocean Commotion– a seven part series about the effects of global change on Southeast Alaska. From whale migration to sea star disease, Sitka is one ‘shell’ of a place, and we are sure you will love this podcast as much as we love being here.

The Ocean Commotion podcast was created by visiting undergraduates from the University of California in Santa Cruz, reporting on the local marine ecosystem in partnership with Raven Radio and the Sitka Sound Science Center. Produced by Adam Lechowicz.
