My deepest thanks to everyone who has supported @MissionBlue this #GivingTuesday. Your generous commitment to the ocean allows us to continue this work. We're in this together – for the ocean and for all life on Earth.…
The Revillagigedo Archipelago is the blue heart of the Mexican seas - the creatures that live here are why marine protection is so vital. #HopeSpots @Mariogomezc @betadiversidad…
My deepest congratulations to Mario Gomez, founder of Beta Diversidad, for becoming the new Champion for the Revillagigedo Archipelago Hope Spot! I had the pleasure of seeing Mario in action as he led the work that ended with the creation of Revillagigedo National Park in 2017.
Being in the ocean in a little submarine, illustrating the nature of what’s here – it’s not just rocks and water. It’s a living system; the water itself is full of life.
Fish have faces, fish are individuals, fish have personality - they have associations that we're just beginning to get to understand.
Tomorrow, please join me and a wonderful panel for "Capturing Hope: The Role of Photography in Ocean Conservation"!…
Congratulations to Hope Spot Champions Richard Vevers and Dr. Mahmoud Hanafy on the launch of the the Great Fringing Reef of the Red Sea Hope Spot! #HopeSpots @theoceanagency @HEPCA3…
I am honored to be featured on @CNN's series, 'Call to Earth', in partnership with @ROLEX! Join me in exploring and safeguarding the blue heart of the planet. #HopeSpots…
You can't take care of climate change without taking care of the ocean.
We have to change if we are to really move from decline to recovery to get to that better place, that perpetual planet, that sustainable place for ourselves within a universe that's really unfriendly.
By declaring the South San Jorge Gulf a Hope Spot, there’s a good possibility that more protection can be given to this remarkable kind of coastal system.…
I want to really salute the Champions for this amazing region – Angeles Rodriguez and César Augusto Grubaldo, who are really working to do what is possible to shine a light on this amazing place. #HopeSpots
It was wonderful to connect at #REWIREDGreen and engage in meaningful conversations about the future of ocean conservation! @WIRED #HopeSpots…
There are a lot of problems, but there are also solutions and plenty of reason for hope.
The ocean is the blue heart of the planet. Thirty percent by 2030 is a good start, but I say half, as soon as we can get there. How much of your heart do you want to protect?
To get to these deep sea minerals means destroying the tree of life. So why would we even think of doing it? I don't see the cost-benefit. There’s an illusion that they’re free goods out there just waiting to be captured.
We are all sea creatures in a way. We're all dependent on the ocean, even if you've never seen the ocean or thought about the ocean, the ocean keeps you alive and the ocean needs your help at this point in history.
I am honored to be included as an Art Contest judge for @OceanicSociety's 2022 Global Ocean Cleanup! Whoever you are, wherever you are, everyone can do something to help take care of the ocean. #GlobalOceanCleanup
Please join @MissionBlue and nine Australian Hope Spot Champions at for a webinar this afternoon about Hope in Australia! #HopeSpots…
Protect the natural systems as if your life depends on it because it does! Our lives do depend on making peace with nature.
It’s only hopeless when you give up. Change happens because of individuals who team up with others or inspire others. And soon you’ve got 10 or 100 or 1,000, and then you've got a movement.
My deepest thanks for the kind birthday wishes! As a new year begins for me, I want to salute you, all of you who make up the growing Mission Blue community of supporters, allies and friends.…
Each of you and all together are cause for hope that on our watch, we will achieve enduring harmony with nature – and in so doing, the potential for peace among ourselves.
The world is a miracle. If you look up at night and you can see the stars, imagine that in all of the universe our particular place in the universe is favorable to use.
My deepest thanks to @ROLEX, @NatGeo, @Scubapro, and all of the ocean champions who dove in for this expedition!
The Galápagos will always be a special place. It was here that I discovered cold water kelp communities on the equator fifty years ago, and it was Galápagos that, years later, inspired our @MissionBlue Hope Spots initiative.…
As 21st century humans, armed with unprecedented knowledge, we can and must do better than our predecessors.
Thank you for giving a voice to the hundreds of fish species, the coral, the whales, the sea turtles and many more who call these waters home. @WWF_Philippines @TubbatahaReefs
I salute Trin Custodio, Angelique Songco and their partners for doing what is in their power to push for increased protection for the Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park. #HopeSpots…
I’ve been to Grand Cayman on a number of occasions, often enough to recognize that the people there really care about their economy, their security – a future that is safe for them. It depends on taking care of the natural world. For island countries, that extends into the ocean.
I salute Chloe and Jon for standing up for protecting the ocean! #HopeSpots… @ProtectOurFutr, Plastic Free Cayman, National Trust, National Museum, @reefresearch
We are the most important people who have ever lived on Earth, because technology is now giving us all the power to know and to demand change.
We celebrate our 40-year partnership with pioneering explorer and tireless oceans advocate @SylviaEarle. Her @MissionBlue organization, a partner in our #PerpetualPlanet initiative, inspires communities to protect marine biodiversity. More on #RolexFamily

I applaud Champions Sharon Kwok Pong, Dr Robert Lockyer and Professor John Wong for doing what they can to protect this Hope Spot and restore health to the southern waters of Hong Kong. @aquameridian #HopeSpots
I am pleased to share @MissionBlue's newest Hope Spot, Hong Kong South! Now, more than ever, it's time to safeguard these waters that are home to wildlife like the critically endangered giant yellow croaker. #HopeSpots…
More important than innovative technologies is innovative thinking. All of us are part of the problem and all of us can be part of the solution.
I hope the policymakers there follow in the Hope Spot’s steps in declaring the Palmahim Slide as a no-take, give-back marine reserve large enough to protect the marine life that is there and allow no destructive activity in the reserve and its vicinity.
I want to give my strongest support to the Champions of the Palmahim Slide in Israel. #HopeSpots…
Horrific! Sharks are beautiful wildlife that keep the engine of the planet's blue heart humming, and to kill them for sport is unfathomable. Join me in asking for an end to the shark fishing tournament on July 9 in Jupiter, Florida:…
Quel honneur! I was deeply grateful to spend time with President @EmmanuelMacron at #UNOC22 discussing the path forward to protecting the blue heart of the planet. With hope, France can also join the leaders protecting 30% of their ocean by 2030. France, nous croyons en toi!
What’s happening at the UN Ocean Conference today is a celebration of a strong move towards a turning point. Humans have succeeded in developing the most magnificent ways of destroying the planet and one another. Today, we celebrate Colombia for stepping up – 30 before 30!…
Amazing to be at the UN Ocean Conference connecting with friends! Wonderful news from earlier today as Portugal makes a big splash in ocean protection. Thank you to @presidencia for being an ocean champion!
We celebrate these victories and continue to sail forward in protecting the ocean. Health to the ocean means health for us and for the planet. @govpt @presidencia @ROLEX @WaittInstitute @OceanoAzulF @MAmbienteuy @adrianbatllista @LuisLacallePou @ambienterd @luisabinader
Three announcements today at the UN Ocean Conference from Portugal, Uruguay and the Dominican Republic are both hopeful and inspiring! These countries are paving the way forward to safeguard the ocean, steering towards 30% of ocean protection by 2030. #UNOC2022 #HopeSpots…
I am delighted to welcome David Johnson and Vikki Gunn as the new Champions for the Charlie-Gibbs Fracture Zone Hope Spot! We must put protections into place that safeguard the deep sea and high seas in order to secure an enduring future for humankind.…
Treat nature as if your life depends on it. Recognize it does, then do something about it.
The Costa Rica Thermal Dome is a critical component of the commitment that the nations along the Eastern Tropical Pacific have made to safeguard a swimway where migratory species have a safe haven.…
Bravo, Dr. Jorge Jiménez, and thank you for stepping up to be the Champion of the Costa Rica Thermal Dome! #HopeSpots @Marvivacr @GOBIsecretariat @iki_germany @FFEM_Fr @GlobalFishWatch @CCADSICA @SargassoSeaCmsn @UBO_UnivBrest @_SARGADOM
What’s under the surface of the ocean is largely mysterious to most. That’s changing. That’s the good news. In the last 10 years, we’ve learned more about the ocean and why it matters to everyone everywhere all the time.
I am honored to share that Shinnecock Bay is now a @MissionBlue Hope Spot! Hope Spot Champions: Dr. Ellen K. Pikitch of @IOCS_OceanSci and @ExplorersClub Partners: @MTKSurfMuseum @OceanicGlobal @stjoesny @SafinaCenter Fragile Earth @KelseyTLeonard…
