The CBE hosts an evening with
Dr. Sylvia Earle 
featuring a screening of  
Mission Blue 
She has been called Her Deepness by the New Yorker and the New York Times, Living Legend by the Library of Congress, and first Hero for the Planet by Time Magazine.    In short, she is a national treasure.  This groundbreaking oceanographer, explorer, author, inventor and field research scientist has led more than 100 underwater expeditions, logged more than 7000 hours beneath the sea, and just recently in 2012, set a record for solo diving at 1000 meters.   The Center for the Blue economy is honored to have Dr. Sylvia Earle as a member of our Advisory Council, and to host this special evening screening her recent documentary:  Mission Blue.    The film will be followed by a Q&A session with Dr. Earle and other ocean leaders.  

Don't miss this incredible evening!

November 3, 7:00-8:30PM
The CBE hosts an evening with
Deborah Cramer  
author of 
The Narrow Edge 
In The Narrow Edge: A Tiny Bird, an Ancient Crab, and an Epic Journey, author Deborah Cramer accompanies tiny sandpipers, red knots, along their extraordinary 19,000 mile annual migration.  She tracks birds on remote windswept beaches along the Strait of Magellan; bug-infested hunting preserves and gleaming oyster banks in South Carolina; and onto the icy Arctic tundra where they nest.  The Narrow Edge is a firsthand account of the tenacity of life along the sea edge, and an inspiring portrait of loss, resilience and renewal, and the courage of humans.   

Join Deborah to explore the birds' odyssey, and her own, to the far ends of the earth, and to examine what's at stake, for the knots, for millions of shorebirds, and for us.
