Natalie Gibb’s passion in life is underwater cave exploration, conservation, and education. With her exploration partner, Vincent Rouquette-Cathala, she has led her team to discover over 20 previously unknown cave systems in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, mapping more than 80 kilometers of cave passageways. She is a public speaker, author, photographer, and videographer, and uses these tools to inspire others to value and preserve the underwater aquifer. Natalie is co-owner of Under the Jungle, a cave diver training center in Mexico, and is a TDI Full Cave Instructor. She uses her shop to support and encourage citizen science projects.
