Igniting Support For a Global Network of Marine Protected Areas
"We need to respect the oceans and take care of them as if our lives depended on it. Because they do." — Dr. Sylvia Earle
Mission Blue inspires action to explore and protect the ocean. Led by legendary oceanographer Dr. Sylvia Earle, Mission Blue is uniting a global coalition to inspire an upwelling of public awareness, access and support for a worldwide network of marine protected areas – Hope Spots. Mission Blue embarks on regular oceanic expeditions that shed light on these vital ecosystems and build support for their protection.
