To honor Sylvia Earle's birthday, what steps will you take to lessen your impact on the ocean?
In 2009, Sylvia Earle wished for the TED community to use all the means at its disposal to help save and restore the ocean, the blue heart of the planet. Mission Blue was created as a way to ignite support for creating hope spots, Sylvia's name for Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), and help spread information about what is happening with our oceans.
There are many ways, big and small, for each of us to be a part of realizing Sylvia's wish. From eating only sustainable seafood to reducing our use of plastic to petitioning governments in favor of a ban on shark finning, each of us can contribute.
What will you do? What advice can you give others on making positive steps to protect the ocean? What do you wish large businesses and governments would do that we as individuals cannot?
