Hope Spot Expeditions

 

Since 2008, Mission Blue expeditions have visited Hope Spots around the world, documenting these vibrant marine environments and engaging local stakeholders to protect them. Led by Dr. Sylvia Earle these voyages explore our most critical ocean habitats and are designed to create awareness, foster partnerships and build broad public support for the creation of marine protected areas across the globe.

Expedition Program Goals

  • Explore and document Hope Spots from the Arctic to the Antarctic

We’re thrilled to be a supporting partner of Antarctic Climate Expedition 2023.

“February 2023 will be a moment in time of a gathering of great minds for commitments to resolve what it takes, to move from where we are now to get to a better future. This can be Your Legacy; you can help change the current course from a catastrophic outcome to a healthy, habitable planet. Please do this for the next generation, for the future of humanity.”

– Dr. Sylvia Earle, oceanographer, marine biologist and explorer
