How has your nominee’s efforts made a difference for the better?

The ocean’s inhabitants – from whales to krill – are entitled to more hope for survival, because of Dr. Earle’s work to save them.

How will being recognized as a YachtWorld Hero further your nominee’s cause?

Dr. Earle’s TedPrize “Wish” quotes, “I wish you would use all means at your disposal – films! expeditions! the web! more! – to ignite public support for a global network of marine protected areas, hope spots large enough to save and restore the ocean, the blue heart of the planet.” I hope that YachtWorld’s recognition of Dr. Earle’s work will help ignite public support of her wish.
