Tune into EarthxTV tonight to watch the season finale of Our Living Oceans!
Our Living Oceans is a documentary series that explores the health of our living oceans, the threats they face, and what is being done to save them through conversations with scientists, conservationists, and local leaders from around the world.
The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation is proud to partner with EarthX to produce this remarkable series. Over the course of six 30-minute episodes, we have introduced viewers to the coral reef crisis, how the Global Reef Expedition is helping address this crisis, and what we and our friends in the conservation community are doing to preserve the health and resiliency of coral reefs and other coastal marine ecosystems.
This week’s episode focuses on Ocean Optimism. In it, we share success stories of ocean conservation and the hope we have for preserving our oceans for the use and enjoyment of current and future generations. This episode features the renowned marine biologist and coral conservationist Dr. Nancy Knowlton, one of the founders of the #OceanOptimism movement. She talks about what gives her hope for our ocean’s future. This episode also features Her Deepness, Dr. Sylvia Earle, talking about how a TED prize made it possible for her to launch Mission Blue and create a global network of Hope Spots to help protect our living oceans.
One of the other experts featured in this episode is our very own Education Director, Amy Heemsoth. Amy discusses the education and outreach work we did on the Global Reef Expedition, which was critical to reaching community leaders and educating the next generation of ocean advocates. These efforts on the Global Reef Expedition led us to establish some of our long-standing education initiatives, such as our Mangrove Education and Restoration Program and the Science Without Borders® Challenge. Amy also discusses how the Living Oceans Foundation is inspiring the next generation to protect our oceans and how these children give her hope for the future.
