The Scientific Exploration Society is delighted to announce that Emily Penn will be the guest speaker following the AGM. Emily is an architect turned ocean advocate and skipper. After rounding the globe on a record-breaking bio-fuelled boat, she spent 8 years at sea, exploring and discovering oceanic gyres - huge areas of plastic accumulation. Emily co-founded Pangaea Explorations, an organisation dedicated to marine education, conservation and exploration via a 72ft sailing vessel.
