Джон Чаттертон (John Chatterton)

Професійний дайвер

John Chatterton

Один з найбільш відомих і досвідчених рек-дайверів у світі, Джон Чаттертон був одним із засновників програми Deep Sea Detectives на каналі History Channel. До початку своєї кар'єри на телебаченні Джон 20 років пропрацював комерційним водолазом в Нью-Йорку і під час подій 11 вересня 2001 року перебував у підземному каналі під будівлею світового Фінансового Центру.

Виявлення і дослідження затонулих об'єктів завжди було пристрастю Джона. Виявлення і шестирічна робота з ідентифікації німецької субмарини U-869, затонулої біля берегів Нью-Джерсі, стало темою кількох телевізійних документальних передач, включаючи спеціальний двогодинний випуск для серіалу NOVA на PBS. Ця ж історія стала темою бестселера Роба Курсон Shadow Divers.

У серпні 2005, Джон і його партнери організували спільну експедицію на найвідоміший затонулий корабель в історії, Титанік. Занурення на глибину більше 4000 м здійснювалися за допомогою апаратів "Мир" російського дослідницького судна "Академік Келдиш". Ряд відкриттів, зроблених під час цих занурень, був показаний на History Channel і описаний у книзі "Останні секрети Титаніка".

На даний момент Джон і його партнери співпрацюють з урядом Домініканської республіки і працюють над проектом з виявлення та ідентифікації місць корабельної аварії навколо острова Еспаньола .

Cody Unser

Cody's First Step Foundation

Cody Unser

Humanitarian

Since being paralyzed in the 6th grade by a spinal cord inflammation, Transverse Myelitis (TM), Cody has raced nonstop to raise awareness and find a cure.  As the daughter of Indianapolis 500 winner Al Unser Jr., she dreams of walking on the racetrack one day.  When she was just 14, she and her mother, Shelley, formed the Cody Unser First Step Foundation, which is dedicated to providing quality–of–life programs for those suffering from paralysis.  These programs include a TM research consortium spearheaded by Johns Hopkins Hospital; Cody's Great Scuba Adventure, created to share her new found freedom for all disabilities; and "Operation Deep Down", a military diving program that introduces wounded veterans to scuba as a way to rehabilitate through recreation.  Cody is a political activist who has testified before Congress and lobbied nationwide for stem cell research, following in the foot steps of her friend, late actor Christopher Reeve.

Matias Ferreira

SUDS (Soldiers Undertaking Disabled Scuba)

Matias Ferreira

Wounded Warrior, SUDS Diver

Like too many other service men and women, Matias Ferreira was injured while serving his country. Instead of letting the bilateral below-the-knee amputation break his spirit, he picked up his remaining pieces and turned himself into a walking, talking, sports-playing, scuba diving inspiration...all before his 25th birthday.

Today Matias volunteers his time to help fellow wounded warriors through SUDS (Soldiers Undertaking Disabled Scuba), and inspires children facing similar problems though the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Kids Camp. He shows us all that anything is possible, and it is this, combined with his dedication to others, that makes Aqua Lung proud to have Matias Ferreira as an Ambassador.

Ana Sofia Guerra

2014 North American Rolex Scholar of the Our World-Underwater Scholarship Society

Ana Sofia Guerra, 24, was born in Monterrey, Mexico, very far away from the ocean. Eleven years later, after a brief move to Dallas, TX, Ana was living in São Paulo, Brazil. Through a local sea turtle NGO, she discovered a passion for the marine world and got certified as a PADI Junior Open Water Diver at age 12. After completing high school in Mexico City, Ana moved to California to attend Stanford University. Ana obtained a degree in Biology through Stanford University and she actively sought out opportunities to do her work by the water. She spent the majority of her college career at Hopkins Marine Station, Stanford’s marine biology station in Monterey Bay where she obtained her Rescue and AAUS Scientific Diver certification, and worked as a field assistant for multiple projects at Palmyra Atoll in the Central Pacific. She also had the opportunity to work closely with small-scale fishers in Baja California Sur, Mexico as well as teach and mentor students for the Stanford@SEA class aboard the SSV Robert C. Seamans. As the 2014 North American Rolex Scholar of the Our World-Underwater Scholarship Society, Ana wants to find her heading in the marine world and find the way to make the biggest impact by continuing to explore different fields in marine science as well writing and photography. She hopes to use what she learns to influence marine conservation practices, make the ocean more accessible to those who don’t have the opportunity to delve into it, and bridge the gap between the marine scientific community and the public.

Ana is thrilled to be representing Aqua Lung and OWUSS as the 2014 North American Scholar.
