Mission & Values

Tell great stories. Save the ocean.

SeaLegacy’s mission is to inspire people to fall in love with the ocean, amplify a network of changemakers around the world, and catalyze hands-on diplomacy through hopeful, world-class visual storytelling.




SeaLegacy’s unique ability to transform the narrative

In our quest to protect and rewild the ocean, SeaLegacy has demonstrated a unique ability to help rewrite the narrative, one conversation at a time. That ability is derived from a simple, yet powerful concept defined by our co-founders Cristina Mittermeier, Paul Nicklen, and Andy Mann: Storytelling+; a unique blend of skills, talents, and tools that incorporate our decades-long expertise as marine scientists, documentary filmmakers, and fine art photographers.

Storytelling+ is further strengthened by our tapestry woven with marine and climate experts, philanthropists, investors, local communities, Indigenous leaders, and policymakers from around the world.
