Nineteen Causes for Hope!
The Bering Sea Canyons were recently named the 19th Mission Blue Hope Spot, an area of critical importance to the ocean’s health: seeds of tomorrow’s healthy ocean. Already, change is happening and hope is growing.
The Bering Sea Canyons Hope Spot supports a near endless variety of precious life, a vital ecosystem which is threatened by industrial fishing. After Mission Blue and Greenpeace
jointly announced the 19th Hope Spot, the North Pacific Fishery Management Council
decided to expand research in the region to conserve the Bering Sea and its canyons.
By identifying precious ecosystems in the oceans with our scientific minds and human hearts — Hope Spots! — we can create a network of Marine Protected Areas across the globe. We can take what’s left of the ocean and nurture our planet’s Blue Heart back to health, for us and for the future.
This is the work of Mission Blue. Onward!
