Internationally renowned marine biologist Sylvia Earle at RWU

Posted

The first female chief scientist of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Time magazine’s first "Hero for the Planet," Sylvia Earle advises heads of state on critical marine protection legislation and works at the forefront of marine catastrophes, including the Deep Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Earle reminds us there is reason for hope—that continued decline in the health of our ocean is preventable, not inevitable.
