Code Blue & The Sylvia Earle Alliance

Code Blue Foundation supports the work of Dr. Sylvia Earle and Mission Blue, a global initiative of the Sylvia Earle Alliance. Mission Blue was formed in response to Sylvia Earle’s 2009 TED Prize wish for people “to use all means at your disposal — films, expeditions, the web, new submarines — to create a campaign to ignite public support for a global network of marine protected areas; Hope Spots large enough to save and restore the blue heart of the planet.”
