Inspiring Hope: Sylvia Earle - 2/25/14
It’s been said that hope is the most powerful motivator in the world…a principle with which I happen to agree. I came to this, in good measure, due to a remarkable person named Dr. Sylvia Earle, oceanographer, scientist, National Geographic explorer-in-residence, and one of this blue planet’s most ardent champions.
I had the good fortune to work with Dr. Earle a few years ago in launching a new organization called Mission Blue. And what I learned while working with this ardent advocate for what she calls Earth’s blue heart, is that conservation is ultimately about the power of hope.
