Sylvia Earle

June 8, 2013

Skin care brand La Mer has teamed up with the underwater explorers at National Geographic to compose a short film for World Oceans Day that is, in a word, breathtaking. 

The collaborative film features Mission Blue founder, Dr. Sylvia Earle as she delves into the big blue abyss while promoting aquatic habitat protection.  Dr. Earle has led more than 100 marine expeditions, logged more than 7,000 hours underwater and, in July 2012, set a record for solo diving in 1,000 meters depth. In short, she’s one of the most influential ocean experts of our time. 

So please, take a few minutes to appreciate the world’s oceans, if you get our drift.

    okay – you’ve done it again – made a grown man tear up in such a good way I like the “do not despair – but realize” as I so want to remain optimistic these 50 years of being a part of the ocean. best wishes row row

    It is easy to get stuck in grief and sadness about what is happening to our water planet. Thank you for the reminder that NOW is exactly when the planet needs people who care and will stand up and embrace the work with love!

  • Jim McCallum says:

    Dr. Earle, you look just the same as you did many years ago when you came to the (Democratic, collaborative, with shared ideals with the Minority, before Newt Gingrich), House Committee on Merchant Marine and Fisheries to make a statement about your goals for the oceans! Thank you for your continuing good work!
