Voice of the Ocean — Sylvia Earle

AVC’s Stu Sweetow recently interviewed Sylvia Earle of Deep Ocean Exploration Research for Nautilus magazine.

In the current documentary, Mission Blue, about the environmental fate of the oceans, filmmaker James Cameron calls Sylvia Earle the “Joan of Arc of the seas.”  Earle first gained public acclaim in 1970, when she was one of five female “aquanauts” to live in an underwater lab off the Virgin Islands for two weeks. Since then her studies of the oceans, and passionate defense of their ecological importance, have won international renown.
