Sylvia Earle: “The Ocean is in Trouble, and Therefore We’re in Trouble” (Video)

South African CoastsSylvia Earle is the explorer in residence at the National Geographic Society, Founder of Mission Blue and author of South African Coasts: A Celebration of Our Seas and Shores.

In a video for Take Part, Earle recently shared why she is passionate about the ocean and driven to protect it. She says, “The ocean is in trouble, and therefore we’re in trouble”.

Earle says two important things were learned about the ocean in the 20th century: That every single human is connected to the ocean; and that humans have the capacity, for better or worse, to alter the ocean.

In the 21st century, Earle says, we need to put those lessons into action: “This is that time”.
