On June 13, the National Geographic Society awarded Sylvia Earle the Hubbard Medal, their highest honor, “for distinction in exploration, discovery and research”.
On June 14, National Geographic “asked Sylvia to discuss her experiences as a woman in a field previously considered a man’s world”.
We can also find this three minute discussion embedded in a National Geographic News Watch piece (by Jane J. Lee) titled:
In Her Words: Sylvia Earle on Women in Science (click here for the news piece)
Earle’s 2009 Ted Prize talk (reminding us about little things like action necessary to avoid extinction)
Plenty of excellent video clips available on the interwebs. This one seems very good:
