We invite you to join Dr. Sylvia Earle and Eleanor Phillips of The Nature Conservancy for a Mission Blue™ expedition aboard the M/Y Sirenuse to visit a critical Hope Spot, the Bahamas.
Dr. Earle’s foundation, the Sylvia Earle Alliance (SEA) launched a global initiative, called Mission Blue in response to Sylvia’s 2009 TED Prize wish, where she urged people “to use all means at your disposal — films, expeditions, the web, new submarines — to create a campaign to ignite public support for a global network of marine protected areas; Hope Spots large enough to save and restore the blue heart of the planet.”
An international coalition of partners dedicated to ocean conservation, research, exploration, policy, technology and communication have coalesced around Mission Blue.
From time to time, SEA embarks on Mission Blue expeditions to explore and raise awareness around the need to protect Hope Spots. These might be existing or potential marine protected areas critical to restoring the ocean.

Board member Ann Luskey has generously donated the use of her private yacht for this extraordinary adventure. Each day we will explore, dive, and learn about this breathtaking environment.
We hope that you will be able to take advantage of this rare opportunity to share a week at sea with Dr. Earle!
