Explorer-in-Residence // Royal Canadian Geographical Society
More people have walked on the moon than have visited many of the places that Jill Heinerth has seen on Earth. Jill is a veteran of over thirty years of filming, photography, and exploration of underwater caves around the globe for National Geographic, educational institutions, and television networks worldwide.
She is the inaugural Explorer-in-Residence for the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, and the recipient of both Canada’s prestigious Polar Medal and the diving world’s highest award from the Academy of Underwater Arts and Sciences.
Jill is currently working on four new non-fiction and children’s books to be published by Penguin Random House in Canada and HarperCollins in the US. In her first release, she uses her expeditionary background to discuss the topic of fear.
