The famed explorer and marine biologist Sylvia Earle was named Explorer of the Year and given the lifetime achievement award by Glamour magazine at their “Women of the Year” awards ceremony today. Other recipients included actress and comedian Mindy Kaling, actress Lupita Nyong'o, and women’s advocate Chelsea Clinton.

Sylvia Earle is a pioneer in the field of marine biology and, in 1970, led the first team of women to live in an underwater station. She has spent more than 7,000 hours underwater and was the first woman to be named chief scientist by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

At almost 80 years of age, Earle continues to embark on ocean expeditions and is a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence.
