Sylvia Earle, aqua-naut
With knowing comes caring, and with caring there is the hope that we will find a place for ourselves within the natural systems that sustain us.
– Sylvia Earle
Called “Her Deepness” and the “Carl Sagan of our Oceans”, Dr. Sylvia Earle is a marine biologist, author, lecturer, and scientific consultant. Earle’s impressive list of accomplishments is enhanced by her genuine love for the ocean, exploration, and science in general. She is an active advocate for the research and protection of one of our largely unexplored frontiers–our seas. Formerly the chief scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Earle is an explorer-in-residence at National Geographic.
Sylvia Earle has led more than 50 expeditions worldwide involving more than 6,000 hours underwater, and has also set the record for the deepest solo untethered dive – 3,000 feet into the Pacific Ocean.
