Los Gatos, CA, April 03, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Famed ocean explorer and scientist, Dr. Sylvia Earle, 77, dons the cover of the latest issue of ActiveOver50, the #1 active 50+ consumer magazine in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Earle’s 60-year-old crusade to save the oceans from environmental disaster includes over 100 ocean expeditions and 7,000 hours in submersibles in deep water. TIME magazine named her “Hero of the Planet. Library of Congress called her a “Living Legend.” She’s a world expert marine biologist and author of over 180 scientific publications, adult and children’s books.

“The biggest problem is that most people haven’t known the extent to which the ocean is in trouble,” Earle said. ”We know more about space than we do about our oceans even though the oceans sustain all life on our planet.”
