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 and Expeditions Director Kip Evans, 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
- Inspire action to protect these critical ocean habitats
- Magnify impact through meaningful partnerships
