Plett Hope Spot program

Hope Spots are special conservation areas that are critical to the health of the ocean, Earth’s blue heart. World-famous marine conservationist Dr Sylvia Earle’s Mission Blue International is committed to developing Hope Spots around the world, with fifty Hope Spots already in existence. Networks of Hope Spots maintain biodiversity, provide a carbon sink, generate life-giving oxygen, preserve critical habitats and allow low-impact activities like ecotourism to thrive. Hope Spots are good for the ocean, which means they are good for us. By engaging government, businesses, schools, research organisations, universities, civil society and the media, Hope Spots effect significant changes so that future generations can thrive on a healthy planet, with a healthy ocean.
