Environmental anthropologist Dr. Kenny Broad, who earned a BA in Literature in 1989 from the College of Creative Studies at UCSB, has participated in extreme scientific and filmmaking expeditions on every continent to gather information and samples that shed light on little known environmental and cultural subjects. Broad and the late Wes Skiles received the National Geographic Explorer of the Year award in 2011.

He is currently a professor at the University of Miami where he directs the Abess Center for Ecosystem Science and Policy.
