Celebrating World Oceans Day with Renowned Deep Sea Explorers

Annually on June 8, we recognize World Oceans Day — a global event encouraging collaboration for a better and healthier future. We are celebrating with two of our renowned speakers that have spent more time under the sea than above it!

Jill Heinerth | Explorer-in-Residence, The Royal Canadian Geographical Society

Jill Heinerth’s curiosity and passion about our watery planet is the driving force in her life. More people have walked on the moon than have visited the places that Jill’s been. As the explorer-in-residence at the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, Jill has undertaken some of the most dangerous technical dives deep inside underwater caves and searched for never-before-seen ecosystems inside giant Antarctic icebergs.

Take a moment to dive into Jill’s world and appreciate the immense depth and mystery of our beloved oceans:

Dr. Joe MacInnis | Renowned Explorer, Leadership, and Teamwork Expert

Dr. Joe MacInnis’ office is located in the ocean. He has spent more time beneath the surface of the Arctic Ocean than any other scientist on earth! He led the teams that made the first scientific dives in the North Pole, built the world’s first polar undersea station, and was also among the first to dive to the Titanic. He uses his highly unique experiences to share lessons on leadership that he’s learned from the high seas and beyond.

Happy World Oceans Day!
