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'.

comes from the fact that...

like myself and like many

of us who were young...

in a younger world

around the ocean,

we saw a place that was

more full of life.

It was... beyond frustrating.

It was agonizing.

Because I know what's

in the Gulf of Mexico.

I just could flash back to times when

I'd be diving in the Gulf of Mexico...

when it was a place...

an underwater paradise.

And to know that it was vulnerable, that

it could be right in the path of...

of this...

This avalanche.

It's just hard to express.


Our Fate and the Ocean's Are One.

That's a bold statement. My fate

and the ocean's are the same fate?

I don't live in the ocean.

I ain't got gills.

Why should I care about

what happens in the ocean?

It's deep, it's dark,

people drown in it

and it's full of sharks

who want to eat us.

Or don't you watch Shark Week?

Yeah, I watch. But think of

the world without an ocean.

You've got a planet

a lot like Mars.

No convenient life

support system.

Most of the oxygen that you

breathe, that everybody breathes,

is generated by the ocean.

And it absorbs much of

the carbon dioxide.

In a way, we're all

sea creatures.

Every whale, dolphin,

coral reef, whatever...

they obviously need the

ocean, but so do we.

No ocean, no life.

No ocean, no us.

So were you that geeky

girl in high school?

The science nerd?

I suppose, in today's terminology,

I would be regarded as a geek.

People sometimes have a hard time

figuring out what they want to do.

I always wanted to be whatever

it is that a scientist does,

I just didn't know

what to call it.

There's a little

library in Dunedin...

that I used to haunt.

I'd sit on the floor and that's where

I first saw a book by William Beebe,
