Dr. Sylvia Earle is the perfect guest for a deep dive into a very important conversation: ocean exploration and conservation. As a National Geographic Explorer At Large, Dr. Earle is an internationally renowned oceanographer and author of the forthcoming book National Geographic Ocean: A Global Odyssey, Dubbed TIME Magazine’s first ‘Hero of the Planet,' Dr. Earle serves as President & Chairman of Mission Blue/The Sylvia Earle Alliance and was the first female chief scientist of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The Library of Congress called her a “Living Legend” and we couldn’t agree more.

In this wide-ranging conversation, we find out what first made Dr. Earle fall in love in the ocean, why we need to rethink and reimagine our relationship with marine life, and what we stand to lose if we don't take the necessary steps to save the ocean.
