Terry Garcia, who for 17 years was the Chief Science and Exploration Officer for National Geographic, takes his audience on an exciting journey into the world of exploration—a world of hidden treasures, lost cities and shipwrecks. It’s also about the last wild, pristine places on the planet, deep ocean exploration, microbes and mitochondria. Drawing on nearly two decades of field experience, he explains who is exploring, why they do it and where they’re going. Along the way, he considers what it means to be an explorer in the 21stcentury and examines the emerging frontiers of modern exploration.
Garcia is a leading authority on terrestrial, underwater and outer space exploration and conservation. He is currently President of Exploration Ventures.
