We’re thrilled to be working with Dr. Sylvia Earle and Mission Blue to help the ocean. The vision of Mission Blue, a global coalition of more than 75 ocean-based non-profits, is to create a network of Marine Protected Areas around the planet to help maintain biodiversity, create carbon sink, and allow low-impact activities like eco-tourism to thrive. Today less than 2% of the ocean, which represents 70% of the Earth’s surface, is protected. By way of comparison, 12% of land around the world is under some form of protection. Mission Blue’s goal is bring Marine Protected Areas up to 20% by 2020. Manifesto is working with Dr. Earle and her team to make a huge splash towards making this a reality. We’ll be announcing more soon, so stay tuned. In the meantime, to learn more about Mission Blue check out their website at www.missionblue.org. And follow Mission Blue on Twitter and Facebook. Both have great stories and images along with ocean news from around the planet.
