Expeditions - 2011

The SEA team, in conjuction with Mission Blue, organizes expeditions to Hope Spots whose preservation is crucial to ocean health and biodiversity. These expeditions provide an opportunity to feature the ecosystems, people, animals and plants that make these places worth preserving--using social media, blogs, live feeds and new content on Google Earth's Explore the Ocean layer. Currently, we are committed to launch three expeditions per year for the next five years. Here are some of the places we've been so far.
