We are honoured and delighted to announce that ‘Her Deepness’ Dr. Sylvia Earle is joining us as our Patron.

Sylvia Earle is President and Chairman of Mission Blue / The Sylvia Earle Alliance. She is a National Geographic Society Explorer in Residence, and is called Her Deepness by the New Yorker and the New York Times, Living Legend by the Library of Congress, and first Hero for the Planet by Time Magazine. She is an oceanographer, explorer, author and lecturer with experience as a field research scientist, government official, and director for several corporate and non-profit organisations.

Sylvia has supported us since we first established the Plastic Oceans Foundation in the UK and kindly agree to do this interview for us for our website, and it was so compelling that it ended up becoming an important part of our film, A Plastic Ocean.

“We need to look after our oceans as if our lives depend on them – because they do”
Dr Sylvia Earle
