Mission Blue

Led by legendary oceanographer Dr. Sylvia Earle, Mission Blue is uniting a global coalition to inspire an upwelling of public awareness, access and support for a worldwide network of marine protected areas – Hope Spots.Hope Spots are special places that are critical to the health of the ocean, Earth’s blue heart. Some Hope Spots are already formally protected, while others still need defined protection. Under Dr. Earle’s leadership, the Mission Blue team has embarked on a series of expeditions to shed light on these vital ecosystems and ignite support to safeguard them as marine protected areas.


The Mission Blue Gift of Compassion supports the scientific and conservation initiatives required to build a network of Hope Spots large enough to save the blue heart of our planet.
