“The next five years may be the most important in the next ten thousand for our planet. There are plenty of reasons for hope, yet every day, doors of opportunity close. We know what to do. Now is the time to act.”
– Dr. Sylvia Earle
Make a Difference Right Now!
Mission Blue depends on the generosity of people just like you to explore and protect Hope Spots. Every dollar you donate helps our continued efforts to inspire a world where the ocean is protected and respected. Now, as never before, we have the chance to save what’s left of the living systems that support life on our planet. We should act as if our lives depend on a healthy ocean—because they do.
Learn about Hope Spots—special places that are vital to the health of the ocean—and share what you learn with others. By igniting a movement to protect Hope Spots through the establishment of a global network of marine protected areas, we can restore the health of the ocean, the blue heart of our planet.
Use your own special talent to help fight for the ocean“Look in the mirror, consider your talents, and think about how you might use them to make a difference. Some have artistic skills, others are good with numbers or have a way with words. Everyone has power to make a difference as an individual, or by joining the company of others who share a common goal. The key is in knowing that what you do matters, including doing nothing!” – Dr. Sylvia Earle
