"Ignorance about the ocean and lack of understanding about the relevance of the fundamental ways people everywhere are connected to the sea underlie the indifference and complacency that have led to abuses imposed by people in recent years, with dire consequences to our future." - Sylvia Earle
We need to educate people on the vibrant world, just offshore. Looking out over the ocean it's hard to see that the ocean is dying. With Mission Blue we want to educate not only the OBX community, but the world on what makes this area of the Atlantic so critical to the health of our entire ocean. By understanding what is out there, we can then help encourage better environmental stewardship. This will be crucial if we are to save our oceans and our planet and our species.
