Legendary National Geographic Explorer-In-Residence Sylvia Earle has spent more than 60 years exploring, protecting, and researching the world’s oceans. With more than a hundred expeditions under her belt and over 7,000 hours logged underwater, Earle has been a pioneer of deep ocean exploration for decades. “As a scientist, I love nothing more than being an explorer, discovering the nature of life itself,” she states.

From leading the first team of women aquanauts in the Tektite project in 1970, to participating in 10 saturation dives, most recently in July 2012, to setting a record for solo diving to a depth of a thousand meters, Earle’s career has been truly remarkable.

She sees the ocean as an “endless horizon that stretches out to blue infinity” and scientists as kids who never grew up.
