A 2008 National Geographic Emerging Explorer, Alexandra discusses what we must do to preserve the integrity of our planet’s waters; shares stories from her adventures around the world; and speaks about one of her initiatives, which seeks to inspire and empower individuals to protect not only the oceans and its inhabitants, but also the human communities that rely on the purity of our freshwater resources.
