For those of you unfamiliar with Sylvia Earle, she is a world-renowned oceanographer whom The New York Times has dubbed "A Living Legend" and The New Yorker has called "Her Deepness."  In 2009, Sylvia won the $100,000 2009 TED Prize wish to save and protect our world's oceans.

For those of you unfamilar with TED, it's a non-profit organization that's motto is "Ideas Worth Spreding" and their website contains a wide variety of videos from a broad base of subjects.

In Sylvia's acceptance video below, she makes a plea to help save the world's oceans and it's definitely worth viewing if you haven't seen it before.
