Everyone is welcome
Student Dive Newfoundland is pleased to welcome as our January guest speaker, the underwater adventurer, blogger, filmmaker and photographer Jill Heinerth! Join us for a virtual presentation via Zoom on Thursday, January 21st, 2020, 3 pm to 4 pm NST.
Jill Heinerth, Explorer in Residence of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, will speak about her experience as an underwater explorer and how this has driven her towards water literacy and conservation efforts. More people have walked on the moon than they have been to the places on earth that Jill has explored. Jill has led expeditions into Antarctic icebergs, volcanic lava tubes and underwater caves around the world by technical rebreather diving as the first Explorer-in-Residence of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society.
The Wall Street Journal, Oprah Magazine, and the New York Times praised Jill’s book “Into the Planet.” She is a fellow from the International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame, Underwater Academy of Arts and Sciences, Women Divers Hall of Fame, National Speleological Society, and the Explorers Club, awarding her the William Beebe Award.
Student Dive NL is a scuba diving club for post-secondary students completing higher education here in Newfoundland. Our goal is to bring together student scuba divers in St. John’s and beyond, and also to entice non-divers into the world of scuba.
Date: Thursday January 21, 2021 @ 3pm NST
