Dr. Emily Duncan, Forbes „30 Under 30“ Innovator – Love for Turtles Beats Plastic Pollution

Although her job is a serious science mixed with a fascination with marine life conservation, Dr. Emily Duncan (27) sees it as an exciting adventure too. This includes collecting samples while being hit by strong wind and waves at a 45-degree angle and spending a night on a beach with huge turtles. Her devotion led her from the rivers of India to crossing the cold waters of the Pacific and she won’t stop until all of us wake up – and face the facts.
