Hello friend of the Ocean,

Did you hear of us online? Or through word of mouth? Or perhaps you just saw the Mission Blue Film. At any rate, if you haven’t met the inestimable Dr. Sylvia Earle, check out her TED talk below to understand her vision for tomorrow’s healthy ocean.

“I wish you would use all means at your disposal — films! expeditions! the web! more! — to ignite public support for a global network of marine protected areas, Hope Spots large enough to save and restore the ocean, the blue heart of the planet.”

                                                                    ~      Dr. Sylvia Earle’s TED Wish


I would like to make a tax-deductible donation!


Opportunities to save the ocean — and ourselves along with it — are slipping away. Decades of overfishing, climate change, acidification and other human pressures threaten the fundamental nature of the ocean and the very future of humankind.

Dr. Sylvia Earle’s message of hope — embodied as Mission Blue — is fast gaining traction around the globe. The equation is not complex: we need to immediately stop taking so much out of the ocean; and putting so much pollution into it. We need to protect what is left of Earth’s Blue Heart. To that end, Mission Blue advocates for a global network of marine protected areas: Hopespots.

YOU can help us spread this message of hope and awaken the global public to the need for immediate action in the face of ocean decline. Join Mission Blue, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, today and support our work in establishing these Hopespots — the seeds of tomorrow’s healthy ocean.
