Synopsis
Oceanographer, explorer, author and lecturer Sylvia Earle has led more than 60 expeditions and logged more than 6,000 hours underwater. A former chief scientist at NOAA, Earle is founder of the Mission Blue Foundation, chair of the Advisory Council for the Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies and a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence. In 2009 Earle was awarded the TED Prize and granted a wish to improve the world. Earle's wish was to convene a gathering of scientists, philanthropists, and conservationists for a TED conference at sea in the Galapagos called "Mission Blue" and her hope was to raise awareness of the need to protect the world's oceans, our life support system, from ourselves. Here, we take a look at Earle's life's work and follow the increasingly urgent international effort, coordinated by the National Geographic Society, to build awareness about the state of our oceans.
