Whale poop. That was how Asha de Vos, the first and only Sri Lankan to hold a PhD in Marine Mammal research, made her first big discovery - that Sri Lanka was home to a unique population of blue whales that did not follow textbook migratory patterns. Since her first discovery, Dr. de Vos has made it her personal mission to bring marine research to her home country in a pursuit of ensuring equal opportunity education for those in developing countries. In this episode, Dr. de Vos dives deep into what she had to overcome to pursue what she loved.

I've made my pledge and hope you will too.
