Alexandra founded Blue Legacy (a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization) in 2008 with the mission of empowering people to reclaim and restore the world’s water, one community at a time.
Through strategic collaborations, Blue Legacy infuses environmental science, technology, and exploration into digital media and storytelling assets to build public awareness of the interconnectivity and importance of local watersheds and global water resources, and to inspire more sustainable water management actions by business leaders, elected officials, communities, and citizens.

Expedition: Blue Planet
Building on the Cousteau legacy of exploration and “experiential storytelling,” Alexandra has led Blue Legacy expeditions across 6 continents to tell some of the most critical water stories of our time. These interactive expeditions tell stories directly from the field to generate excitement and understanding around critical water issues with a network of media partners. Alexandra has produced over 100+ short films, thousands of images, blogs, and public engagement with over 100 million media impressions a month while she was in the field. These expeditions allow traditional and online media outlets to more effectively engage audiences and drive productive discussion around how people can protect their water and the places they love.
Alexandra joined forces with Oceana in 2011 as Senior Advisor to help mobilize awareness and support for the organization's important work. She has joined Oceana expeditions, events and campaigns to help propel their important work to ever larger audiences and deeply believes in the mission and track record of the organization.
Founded in 2001, Oceana is the largest international organization focused solely on ocean conservation, protecting marine ecosystems and endangered species . Our offices in Europe, North America, Central America and South America work together on a limited number of strategic, directed campaigns to achieve measurable outcomes that will help return our oceans to former levels of abundance. We believe in the importance of science in identifying problems and solutions. Our scientists work closely with our teams of economists, lawyers and advocates to achieve tangible results for the oceans.
