Oceanographer, aquanaut and author
Read our PURE Encounter with Sylvia Earle
Nicknamed "Her Deepness" by the New Yorker and the New York Times, "Living Legend" by the Library of Congress, and first "Hero for the Planet" by Time magazine, Sylvia Earle is an oceanographer, explorer, author and lecturer with a fervid commitment to protecting the world’s oceans. Having fought unfavourable 1960s odds to join early expeditions as a woman, she has since put her name to titles including chief scientist of NOAA, founder of Deep Ocean Exploration and Research Inc., founder of Mission Blue and SEAlliance and chair of the Advisory Councils of the Harte Research Institute and the Ocean in Google Earth. At a show where the concept of ‘New Frontiers’ is at the forefront of our minds, we’re extremely excited to have such an admirable authority on our judging panel.
