Dr. Sylvia Earle and the Mission Blue expeditions team visited Cocos Island, Costa Rica in 2011 and 2015 to highlight the immense diversity and fragility of species populating the waters surrounding what Jacques Cousteau called “the most beautiful island in the world.” During the 2015 expedition in partnership with Fusion and Univision Media, the team captured exhilarating footage of a “bait ball,” conducted dives down to 1,000 feet in the DeepSee submersible, and created content for a media campaign to raise awareness among millennials and urge Costa Rica to ban hammerhead shark fin exports—a sanction that has since been established. Mission Blue Director of Expeditions, Kip Evans, produced an original short film from the expedition titled Beyond Blue (below).
