Jill is a certified Full Cave Diver and has been cave diving since the mid-1970's. She has logged more dives in caves than in the ocean. She is a Fellow and Life Member of the National Speleological Society. While exploring caves in the Bahamas, Jill collected and named the Remipedia, an unusual animal that represented a new class of crustacean. Since her biological discovery she has explored caves throughout the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, Mexico & Cuba, and discovered many new species of cave adapted animals. Jill is Professor Emerita of Antioch College. She has been living in Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, Mexico for over 10 years. Jill is a Research Associate with the Invertebrate Zoology Department at the Natural History Museum, Smithsonian, where she continues to study remipede crustaceans.

Journey Into Amazing Caves, 6 Nov 2014 [cached]
Jill Yager, Professor of Ecology, Invertebrate Zoology and Freshwater and Marine Environments, Antioch College, Yellow Springs, Ohio.
"Caves are amazing habitats that deserve our care and protection. Whatever we do on the surface affects what is beneath our feet. Caves, especially water-filled ones, are very susceptible to pollution, the effects of deforestation, and misuse of ground water. This movie will introduce many people to caves for the first time, and I hope the audience will enjoy their beauty and walk out with a sense of respect for their uniqueness and the part they play in our environment."
Dr. Yager earned her PhD in Ecological Sciences from Old Dominion University. She conducts research in submerged caves where she studies water chemistry and the animals that live there. She has been a certified cave diver for over 25 years and has explored submerged caves in the Bahamas, Mexico, the Turks and Caicos, Cuba, Bermuda, and Florida. While cave diving in the Bahamas in 1979, Yager discovered an exciting crustacean totally new to science. This crustacean was not just a new species, but a new class of crustacean which she named the Remipedia. Yager continues her study of submerged cave environments and her search for new species of remipedes. Her research has been featured in several television documentaries, including Smithsonian World, 3-2-1 Contact, the New Explorers, and National Geographic's Sea Stories.
