Called “Her Deepness” by The New Yorker, Dr. Sylvia Earle is widely acclaimed as the most important advocate for research and protection of the world’s seas. She’s a marine biologist, author, lecturer, and scientific consultant. Formerly the chief scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Earle is an explorer-in-residence at National Geographic. Earle made her first dive at the age of 16, in a borrowed copper diving helmet. Earle still holds the record for the deepest untethered solo dive, and has led more than 50 expeditions worldwide. Recognized by the Library of Congress as a "Living Legend" and inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame, she is the author of more than 100 publications concerning marine science and technology, including the books Sea Change (1995) and Wild Ocean (1999). She has participated in numerous television productions and given scientific, technical, and general interest lectures in more than 60 countries. This past speaker page shares her podium presentation as well as the Q&A.
