The legendary oceanographer Sylvia Earle, TED Prize winner and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, visited the Monterey Institute this week to talk to aspiring marine policy professionals and give them some career advice. Sylvia was named TIME magazine´s first “Hero for the Planet,” and is well known for her ocean research (logging more than 7,000 hours underwater) and activism for the protection of our oceans.

Sylvia Earle is part of an impressive line-up of speakers taking part in the International Marine Policy Speaker Series, funded by the Monterey Institute’s Center for the Blue Economy, and designed to introduce students of the International Environmental Policy program to a wide range of cutting-edge topics related to international marine policy. The International Environmental Policy Program also sponsors the fall Sustainability Speaker Series.
