Dr. Sylvia Earle presents Dr. Bob Ballard with a Lifetime Achievement Award

Inner Space Commander-in-Chief Dr. Robert D. Ballard received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation at their annual dinner on June 9th in Washington, DC.

Have you ever seen two more beautiful people? Drs. Earle and Ballard take our nation’s ocean’s to heart every moment of every day. Together they are building the foundations of our ocean future. Just stand back and watch them work a room some day.

Dr. Ballard was honored as a man of many achievements, not the least of which is his ability to help Stephen Colbert understand “why lobsters are red.”
