A Rolex Testimonee since 1982, internationally renowned marine biologist and National Geographic Society Explorer-in-Residence Dr Sylvia Earle is a pioneer of the deep, called “Her Deepness” by The New Yorker and The New York Times. Born with a fascination for the sea, Earle has made it her life-long goal to protect what she calls the “blue heart of the planet”. After more than 50 years of underwater exploration, she possesses the same drive and passion as when she made her very first dive at the age of 17. She has led numerous oceanographic expeditions researching marine ecosystems and the technology to access the deep-sea environment, logging more than 7,500 hours dive time in the course of her career. Sylvia Earle is a committed advocate of the oceans and their vulnerable ecosystems. In 1998 she was named “Hero of the Planet” by Time Magazine. Her first connection with Rolex dates back to 1970 when the brand equipped the first all-female team of women aquanauts, led by Earle, on Tektite II, a marine exploration programme which also tested the health effects of prolonged living in underwater structures.

“We are very dependent on the natural systems that sustain us. If we take care of the ocean and the rest of the natural world, we’re really taking care of ourselves,” says Dr. Earle.

Dr. Earle also founded the Mission Blue organisation, that aims to galvanize global support for marine protected areas that will cover 20 per cent of the world’s oceans by 2020, through public outreach, scientific expeditions and partnerships with global corporations and governmental bodies. The organization is igniting public awareness for a growing network of Hope Spots around the globe that are regarded as vital to the oceans’ health. Mission Blue’s primary measure of success is the increasing amount of ocean formally protected from environmental damage and over-exploitation each year.

Women, such as these Rolex Testimonees, are changing the world, and the way the world sees women. They share the same pioneering spirit and commitment to excellence. Their courage and perseverance is an example to all, inspiring both men and women of all generations to greatness.
