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…
While New York conjures up visions of skyscrapers and crowded streets, it is a great ocean state with a significant coastline, a rich maritime heritage and growing opportunities to view ocean wildlife from the shores and in the water. #HopeSpots #WorldOceanWeek
On June 8th, please join me, Dr. Christine Zalewski and Cindi Punihaole, Champions of the Kahalu'u Bay Hope Spot, and Dr. Mark Deakos, Champion of the Olowalu Reef Hope Spot for a Blue Hope Roundtable about Hope in Hawaii! #HopeSpots…
Kahalu'u Bay serves as a model for other smaller bays around the world and shows how they too can harness the deep relationships between people and the environment to protect these cherished places. #HopeSpots…
It’s humbling to be alive at all, when you think what a miracle it is, that Earth exists and we exist. And we're about to blow it - unless we hurry.
For me, a Hope Spot is any place in the ocean that is still in pretty good shape, that if we act now and protect, it’s a cause for hope.
No one lives far from the ocean. Every breath you take, every drop of water you drink is from there, even if you’ve never set foot in it.
Actions have been taken since 1996 to help take care of the waters around Saint Barthélemy. I am pleased to share it is now a Mission Blue Hope Spot!…
Champions Didier Laplace, founder of Coral Restoration Saint Barthélemy and Annelisa Gee, community member and business owner are working together to enhance protection for Saint Barthélemy. It’s a small place – it’s only 22 km² – small in size, but large in impact.
Being able to breathe underwater is unbelievable. Every time I leap into the ocean, I still feel the same sense of wonder and joy that I did when I completed my first dive in my late teens.
Consider the ocean as Earth’s life support system. It holds 97% of Earth’s water & is home for most of life on Earth. The living ocean generates most of the oxygen in the atmosphere, shapes climate, weather & planetary chemistry. In short, the ocean makes life on Earth possible.
If you look at the stars at night, they are beautiful, but they’re terrifyingly inhospitable. Imagine trying to live on the sun. Earth is a miracle. Our existence is a miracle.
No individual or organization can do everything, but together, we are making big waves.
In my own lifetime, we’ve learned more about this great mass of blue than in the rest of human history - and we’ve still only explored less than 10 percent of it.
We shape the world we live in. We're changing the nature of nature.
Rather than be afraid of evolution and try to stifle inquiry, people should revel in the joys of knowing and find a serenity and a joy in being a part the rest of life on Earth. Not apart from it, but a part of it.
The ocean is the blue heart of our planet, and if there’s no blue, there’s no green.
We are all together in this single living ecosystem called planet Earth.
Thank you, @SargassoSeaCmsn, for stepping up and committing to being a Champion for the Sargasso Sea, the floating golden rainforest that is so important to so many creatures in the Atlantic Ocean. #HopeSpots…
There are plenty of reasons for hope, and that's what keeps me going.
I've had the joy of spending thousands of hours under the sea. I wish I could take people along to see what I see, and to know what I know.
By protecting nature, recovery is possible! If enough people start moving in the right direction, we'll get there.
What do you care about? Your health, security, the economy? Then you have to care what we are doing to the planet and the ocean.
No blue, no green. No ocean, no us.
Every human being has power. We just have to pull together and work toward the common importance of protecting the natural systems.
It’s the way of the world these days that humans are increasingly encroaching on what remains of natural wild places. There’s a limit to what we can do and still have a planet that works in our favor.
This is the time to understand the true value of these creatures. Not just for their own good, which is enough, but for the benefits of people. We're on the edge of losing them forever unless action is taken now.
I particularly want to salute Andrea Marshall and her team with the Marine Megafauna Foundation – they work with so many large creatures that are so important and so threatened.
There’s an opportunity now to significantly scale up and embrace those areas that are already protected with a larger area along the whole coast of Mozambique that connects the land with the ocean beyond.…
Mozambique as a country has already taken significant actions to safeguard the extraordinarily rich, highly important life along the coastline. Everything is on the line. #HopeSpots
We're right at that critical moment when we know enough and care enough that we might save ourselves by saving nature, just in time.
Protecting sardines and sharks has benefits as significant as safeguarding songbirds and sea lions. All are integral to the magical nature of the Enchanted Islands with profound benefits to the world beyond.
Bravo, President @LassoGuillermo, and all who are supporting enhanced protection for wildlife in the ocean surrounding the Galápagos Islands where most of the terrain is submerged and most of the animals are aquatic. #HopeSpots #30x30…
Our existence depends on the healthy ocean that has taken a very long time to shape the planet in ways that favor us. It’s taken us a short time to disrupt those very basic systems, but it’s not too late to turn the corner.
