Meeting an icon: Sylvia Earle

After many years of reading about and closely following Sylvia Earle's adventures in the ocean realm, I finally got my turn to meet her at a cocktail party held in honour of 'her deepness' and the launch of the Mission Blue website. All a bit surreal but thank you to the TED fellow's team for making it all possible :)

  1. Asha,
    So glad that you finally got to meet Dr. Earle! I have admired your work since I saw my first blue whale in person off San Francisco & began to do some research on these magnificent creatures. Thank you so much for the work that you do.

    Director of Communications for Mission Blue

  2. Deb -- thank you so very very much for your lovely message! I am super flattered :) Your work for mission blue is incredibly important too! I was so excited to meet her - even for a few minutes....Everyone needs someone to inspire them! Keep watching this space, hopefully I will have some interesting stories to tell...we are at the moment awaiting some things to fall into place to head out and do two more weeks of exciting field work :) Keep those vibes coming :) Asha.
