Conservationist and National Geographic Explorer in Residence, Enric Sala, founded and leads Pristine Seas, a project that combines exploration, scientific
research, media, and strategic communications to inspire country leaders to
protect the last wild places in the ocean. Since 2008, Pristine Seas has helped
create 26 of the largest marine-protected areas (MPAs) in the world.
Through 2030, Pristine Seas will work with local and indigenous communities,
governments, and other partners to establish 40 new MPAs and catalyze
the global community to protect at least 30% of the ocean by 2030. This will
preserve vital ocean areas, protect carbon stocks, and support local food
supply—a triple win.
The Pristine Seas traveling exhibition reveals the benefits of MPAs in
protecting biodiversity, preserving carbon stocks, and ensuring economic
and food security for the local communities who depend on the ocean for
