National Geographic Pristine Seas has been exploring and helping to protect the ocean since 2008. The Pristine Seas team has surveyed marine waters from the poles to the tropics during 38 exciting expeditions. But their work is not finished. Pristine Seas is now launching a thrilling new project to expand its impact with a tried and tested blueprint of science, storytelling, economics and policy, and partnerships. Pristine Seas: The Global Expedition is a five-year voyage to help protect vital places in the ocean.
The team will travel across the Pacific, the largest and deepest of the Earth’s ocean basins, onboard the Argo, an exploration vessel equipped to explore the ocean from shallow to deep, from microbes to sharks. The Argo will carry an international group of scientists and filmmakers on board. Their work will highlight stories of local conservation leaders, showcase the power of Pacific Islanders’ traditional knowledge, and fill critical data gaps to help country leaders make important decisions on marine protection. This effort aims to bring leaders in ocean conservation together to help protect vital places in the ocean by 2030, so ocean life can thrive and continue providing for humanity.
