TED and Sylvia Earle, the 2009 TED Prize winner and world-renowned, deep-ocean explorer, announced the launch of Mission Blue to raise awareness of the urgent need to create Marine Protected Areas – Hope Spots – ranging from the deepest oceans to sunlit reefs. The announcement came on the first day of theMission Blue Voyage, a first-of-its-kind conference hosted by TED from April 6-10 aboard the National Geographic Endeavour in the Galapagos Islands.

Here’s Sylvia Earle’s TED Wish:

I wish you would use all means at your disposal — films! expeditions! the web! more! — to ignite public support for a global network of marine protected areas, hope spots large enough to save and restore the ocean, the blue heart of the planet.

Here’s her great TED Talk:

The Mission Blue Voyage is a star studded expedition to the Galapagos Island that you can follow on their blog, Facebook and Twitter.

TED Conferences always seem awesome but this one is on a ship! How much more exciting than that can it get!
