Dr. Kenny Broad — Extreme Cave Diving: Exploring the Bahamas' Blue Holes (SOLD OUT)

Wed, Mar 20 at 7pm

SOLD OUT

Kenny Broad, National Geographic’s Explorer of the Year for 2011, is also an accomplished cave explorer. He pursues this extreme and dangerous occupation not for sport but to gain valuable insights into the freshwater world beneath our feet. Named a “freshwater hero” by National Geographic’s Freshwater Initiative, Broad uses his research to study climate change and groundwater pollution to help better manage freshwater resources.

Largely unexplored, unimaginably beautiful, and considered among the most hazardous places to dive, the flooded caves, or “blue holes” of the Bahamas, are a potential treasure trove of scientific knowledge. Broad leads scientific expeditions to these dangerous but fascinating environments, making discoveries with implications for fields as diverse as microbiology, archaeology, and even astrophysics.
