There are not many people who can say their career started with a pile of poop, but that is just what happened with marine biologist and 2016 National Geographic Emerging Explorer Asha De Vos. Fresh out of undergrad, De Vos managed to talk her way onto a whale research vessel headed for her home country of Sri Lanka. The vessel came across some blue whales ... and an unexpected scene. A captivating story teller, De Vos takes the stage to share her passion for whales and the work she is doing to protect a population of "unorthodox whales" off the coast of her homeland.
