Dr. Sylvia Earle is marine biologist, explorer, and eco-conservationist.

“Called “Her Deepness” by The New Yorker and The New York Times, and the “Carl Sagan of our Oceans” by USA Today, Dr. Sylvia Earle is a marine biologist, author, lecturer, scientific consultant, the co-founder and director of Deep Ocean Engineering, Inc., and the president of Deep Ocean Exploration and Research, Inc. (http://www.doermarine.com/). Earle’s impressive list of accomplishments is enhanced by her genuine love for the ocean, exploration, and science in general. She is the most important and active advocate for the research and protection of one of our most precious and 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. She also serves as the first female honorary president of The Explorer’s Club…..Earle still holds the record for the deepest untethered solo dive, and has led more than 50 expeditions worldwide involving an excess of 6,500 hours underwater.” (http://www.ohio.edu/frontiersinscience/)
