VENICE, FL  – Reservations are now available for a Gulf Coast Community Foundation luncheon featuring oceanographer Dr. Sylvia Earle, founder and president of Mission Blue and a National Geographic Society Explorer-in-Residence since 1999.

A world-famous ocean scientist who has logged more than 7,500 hours under water and is affectionately called “Her Deepness” by colleagues and the media, Earle will discuss the topic Saving Our Seas. “Sylvia Earle is one of the most respected ocean scientists of all time,” said Mark S. Pritchett, President | CEO of Gulf Coast Community Foundation. “She understands so well how our oceans sustain our planet and what we must do to protect them, before it’s too late. Our Gulf Coast communities must hear Dr. Earle’s urgent message."

Earle will headline Gulf Coast’s annual Better Together event on March 13, 2020, at The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota. Reservations are $75, which includes lunch and valet parking, and can be made online at
