Dr. Sylvia Earle has delivered a clear roadmap for ocean recovery with her vision to “ignite public support for a network of Hope Spots, marine protected areas, that are large enough to restore the health of the ocean.” Since its founding in 2010, Mission Blue has built a global network of more than 140 Hope Spots in 69 countries covering approximately 57,580,000 square km of the ocean. Mission Blue embarks on regular oceanic expeditions that shed light on these vital ecosystems and build support for their protection. In the summer of 2022, Dr. Earle will lead the Mission Blue Expedition Team as they join forces with the Oceanic Society, Hope Spot champions and scientific partners in the Galápagos Islands Hope Spot to advance an array of research objectives—with the theme, “Think like an ocean.”
Global Coralition unites art, science and community to regenerate collapsing coral reef ecosystems
In the midst of a global environmental crisis that treats Africa’s most sacred animals as a killing commodity in cross-border trade, Linda Tucker has dedicated her life to the solution.
“Today, every conservation issue is a global issue.
If Brazil destroys its rain forests, the world has lost its lungs.
If South Africa loses its White Lions, humanity has lost its heart…”
– Linda Tucker, House of Lords 2019
While every crisis is interrelated, so are the solutions. Over 3 decades, the work of Linda Tucker and the Global White Lion Protection Trust has united ancient indigenous knowledge with modern science to help save species, reviving ecosystems and human value systems. Based in UNESCO’s Kruger-to-Canyons Biosphere, one of the world’s most important biodiversity hotspots, the Global White Lion Protection Trust has been returning the White Lions back to the wild in a leadership model of harmonious coexistence with mutual benefits for Lions, Land and People.

Our planet is magnificent. Life has evolved for millions of years, creating a rich and diverse ecosystem, an intricate web where all life can thrive. The climate crisis is the result of a deep imbalance on the Earth. Our species has been extracting, producing, and polluting without much consideration for other forms of life, even our own. This imbalance is a symptom of our alienation from natural rhythms, cycles, and systems, and our lack of caring relationship to our world. This also manifests in ever-increasing crises in mental health, breakdown of communities, and auto-immune diseases being diagnosed at alarming rates. The Boa Foundation works together with indigenous communities worldwide to address these issues holistically, supporting both cultural and natural biodiversity, and the healing of the planet.
