With passion, conviction, and a zest for life, Cristina “Mitty” Mittermeier has dedicated her life’s work to safeguarding the ocean and inspiring millions to do the same. She offers insights she’s gleaned from documenting the far reaches of our planet aboard SeaLegacy 1, her home for six months each year. And, in light of the growing challenges facing our ocean—and world—she invites us to ask ourselves, “What is Enough?” Join Mitty as she shares how she has come to understand how “Enoughness” can be cultivated by finding fulfillment in what we have and in recognizing our connectedness to all things.
