Parker Liautaud is an environmental campaigner and a polar explorer. At the ripe age of 15, he and his expedition partner Doug Stoup attempted to reach the North Pole but fell 15 miles short. The following year at 16 they made it, and again at 17. At the age of 19, Parker and Doug completed the fastest coast to south pole expedition of Antarctica - 350 miles in a little more than 18 days.
