In a beautiful new film released this Friday on Netflix, oceanographer and explorer Sylvia Earle describes her underwater adventures. She also explains why she is driven to protect wild oceans the way we now protect wild lands. Her goal, like the film, is called Mission Blue.
I have known Sylvia for more than 20 years. She is an honorary NRDC trustee and helped design our oceans program. Her passionate commitment to our oceans is a constant source of inspiration.
