BERMUDA - SEPTEMBER 1: A scientist examines a coral sperm mixed with sargassum during an expedition to the Sargasso Sea as part of the 'Mission Blue' campaign. Mission Blue's purpose is to explore the ocean while further protecting it. 'It's not enough that we protect 12% of our land but it's certainly not enough that we protect just a fraction of one percent of our oceans.' says Sylvia Earle, founder of the program. Earle is a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, sometimes called 'Her Deepness'. She led the Google Ocean Advisory Council, a team of 30 marine scientists providing content and scientific oversight for the 'Ocean in Google Earth.' To date, she has led over 70 expeditions, logging more than 6500 hours underwater. Among the more than 100 national and international honors she has received is the 2009 TED Prize for her proposal to establish a global network of marine protected areas.
