Mission blue an ocean documentary you must watch

Living in a remote village of Bali, our team does not have an easy access to recent movies and documentaries. If I am not mistaken, Netflix is also banned to watch, so we use a VPN.

Over the past years we have often watched movies that were big hits a couple of months or even years prior. We are big fans of ocean related documentary and Sylvia Earle. So back then we had to find a way to watch this ocean documentary.

Sylvia Earle the star of this ocean documentary – Mission Blue

Back in 2017, we were invited by the Coral Triangle Center in the South of Bali, for the screening of the documentary Mission Blue. For those who haven’t heard of or have not seen this documentary/biography highlighting the career and dreams of Dr. Sylvia Earle, we are highly recommending it. This American marine biologist, oceanographer, environmentalist, mom and girls that scuba has been an inspiration for a lot of young ladies around the globe, me included.

The message behind the Netflix ocean documentary is clear. We need to protect our eco-system and it starts with our oceans: 

1- Reducing the use of fossil fuels
2- Reducing/banning single use plastic
3- Reducing the amount of fish and seafood we eat
