Mission Blue

Synopsis: Legendary oceanographer and TED prize winner Dr. Sylvia Earle is on a mission to save our oceans. Mission Blue is part action-adventure, part expose of an Eco-disaster. More than 100 scientists, philanthropists and activists gather in the Galapagos Islands to help fulfill Dr. Earle's lifelong wish: build a global network of marine protected areas, like underwater national parks, to protect the natural systems that keep humans alive. As the expedition ends, the Deep water Horizon oil well explodes. With oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico, Sylvia and an environmental dream team race around the world trying to defend her 'Hope Spots'.

Like, seriously.

Just take me back to how

you became so passionate

about the ocean.

Well, it all started

in New Jersey.

As a kid, I had complete freedom

to go play in the woods,

to spend all day out,

just fooling around.

On my own, often.

I mean, a lot of the

time, just on my own.

Left bank, I'm

waiting for someone

Someone to be my friend

My mother was known as the

bird lady of the neighborhood.

People would bring injured

squirrels, birds, frogs...

anything that needed help.

Without you...

My father, who was really so bright

and so capable of fixing things.

When I was a little kid, I'd try to take

things apart to see how they worked

and he always reminded me to save

all the pieces, don't lose any,

and be sure you know how to

put it back together again.

I can't hold the sun

We're losing a lot

of the parts...

the loss of the diversity

of life on Earth...

the bits and pieces have

just disappeared...

and we don't know how to put things

back together again once they're gone.

When I was 12, we picked

up and moved to Florida.

At first, I was not particularly charmed,

because I loved the other place so much.

But the Gulf of Mexico was

this great blue body of water

that created almost this mythic

place that lured my parents there.

Some kids play in the streets.

Some kids have a backyard

and my backyard was wet.

It was the Gulf of Mexico.

It was glorious.

That's where I first fell

in love with the ocean.

I could see it. I could hear it.

I could smell it.

I could touch it.

I could splash around in it.

I loved when seaweed came

ashore in huge amounts.

It was like going to the zoo.

I had fun finding these creatures...

like little crabs.

You could take them and then gently

put them back into the ocean,

and they'd scurry off.
