Pristine Seas

The National Geographic Society's Pristine Seas project identifies, surveys, protects, and restores the last truly wild places in the ocean. Through exploration, scientific research, economic and policy analysis, and outreach, Pristine Seas works to establish marine reserves where marine life can thrive—while ensuring that they will be effectively managed for years to come.  Pristine Seas partners with heads of state, local governments and communities, NGOs, and business leaders.
