It was a great honour when the team at Mission Blue contacted me about an interview. Mission Blue is a global initiative formed in response to Sylvia Earle's 2009 TED Prize wish. Dr. Earle urged 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."
Many of you will remember my excitement at meeting Dr. Sylvia Earle at TED in Long Beach. The excitement continues! Let's all join hands to accomplish this incredible TED wish! The time is NOW!
