Denise Landau
Denise Landau has managed to combine her love of natural history and expedition travel with a focus on environmental protection and education since 1982.  She has been actively involved in building bridges between the cruise tourism industry, governments and environmental groups for the last 30 years.

Previously she held the position as Executive Director of the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO) – an organization, which has set the highest environmental operating standards within a self regulatory regime anywhere in the world. The organization grew over 425% during her nine years of leadership.  Prior to taking on the lead position, she served IAATO on the Executive Committee for 7 years prior while working for previous expedition travel companies. She has represented IAATO as the head of its delegation and the spokesperson for the Antarctic Tourism industry at the annual Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meetings for 12 years and at numerous international meetings.

She has been asked to speak at several ecotourism and scientific conferences and has published several papers regarding Antarctic tourism.  She had coordinated the activities through a multitude of techniques including an interactive web based process of over 100 travel companies from 15 countries, compiled environmental assessments and coordinated permits and documentation for ship visits to the Antarctic.

As a result of her many years of work, there is an Antarctic glacier named in her honor – the "Landau Glacier".
