A Whirwind Week with Sylvia Earle

This writer has long perceived that Dr. Sylvia Earle and her Mission Blue is to Healthy Oceans what Dr. Martin King was to Civil Rights. She’s leading a Movement that is just starting to gather real steam. Here’s an example.

“We’ve always wondered what it would be like to spend a week in the shoes of our hero and OWOO science adviser Dr. Sylvia Earle.

“Well, we got our chance last week when we filmed the first-ever meeting of OceanElders in San Francisco, followed a few days later by an exclusive interview with “Her Deepness” at the America’s Cup in San Diego.”

“All we can say is that we don’t know how she does it – but we’re lucky that she does.”

Joining Earle as fellow Ocean Elders are Sir Richard Branson, Ted Turner, HM Queen Noor, Jackson Browne, Dr. Rita Colwell, Jean-Michel Cousteau, Graeme Kelleher, Sven Lindblad, Captain Don Walsh and Neil Young.


“If you haven’t yet heard of OceanElders, well, get ready. Launched back in August, OceanElders is an independent group of global leaders that aims to use its networks and influence to put ocean conservation at the forefront of the global agenda.”



We’re talking about some of the most influential leaders of our time: Dr. Sylvia Earle, Sir Richard Branson, Ted Turner, HM Queen Noor, Jackson Browne, Dr. Rita Colwell, Jean-Michel Cousteau, Graeme Kelleher, Sven Lindblad, Captain Don Walsh and Neil Young.

“Last week, OceanElders descended upon San Francisco to convene its inaugural meeting. The goal of the meeting? To identify the key ocean issues on which OceanElders will focus its efforts and map out a framework for moving forward and making an impact.

One World One Ocean Get Serious with Dr. Sylvia Earl

{NOTE: Filmakers are MacGllivray Freeman Films} The working title of this interview – OneWorldOneOcean Gets Real with Sylvia Earle. “We’re in the process of editing the footage as we speak, but to give you a sense of what’s to come, here are a couple of things we covered: Sylvia Earle’s most memorable dive; a message from Sylvia Earle to young explorers;what scares Her Deepness (hint: you won’t find it in the ocean.)

“While the meeting was closed to the public (this time around), “….we were fortunate to get a behind-the-scenes look at OceanElders in action.

Plus, we know is an awesome filming outfit, so stayed tuned for some awesome video content.”

You bet we will stay tuned!
