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”.

  1. Lisa S. Says:

    Sylvia Earle is amazing. Her work described in the second video clip is so important for our literal survival. And the interview she gives in that third video – amazing.

  2. I wish I could give interviews and work toward saving the world from 60 feet underwater at around age 77 for up to 4 to 8 hours a day! She really is amazing.
