In June 2002 #TeamHB6’s Liz Rickman took her turn as a peaceful Greenpeace protestor chained aboard the M/S Fagervik at the Swedish port of Norrköping.

Sylvia Earle, in her 80s, is mesmerising in her intelligence. Marine biologist, oceanographer, explorer, author, lecturer, explorer-in-residence since 1998 for National Geographic, first female chief scientist of the U.S. NOAA: National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration, and named by TIME as its first Hero for the Planet in 1998.

We are the “community” and if we want to see lions in the wild, if we want our children and great grandchildren to see lions – then whether you live in the USA or in the UK or live alongside them in an African village, you have to be involved in their protection.
Improving diversity and inclusion in our programs is a key priority for Homeward Bound, and and we are delighted to announce two scholarships that offer financial support to #TeamHB6.

Homeward Bound is an inspirational, focused, pragmatic, global collaboration for and with women in STEMM, to role model and evolve a very different way of leading. We share common cause – to care for Earth as our home, and we have the expertise, intellect and will to do something about it.
