Pristine Seas is an exploration, research, and media project to find, survey, and help protect the last wild places in the ocean. These pristine places are unknown by all but long-distance fishing fleets, which have started to encroach on them. It is essential that we let the world know that these places exist, that they are threatened, and that they deserve to be protected.
Latest Expedition: Mozambique
The National Geographic Pristine Seas team recently completed an expedition to the southern coast of Mozambique, a region that is home to some of the healthiest populations of marine megafauna such as manta rays, dugongs, and whale sharks.
Expedition Leader Paul Rose led a group of key scientists and filmmakers to explore, survey, and document these terrestrial and marine ecosystems. Together with National Geographic Emerging Explorer Andrea Marshall and the Marine Megafauna Foundation, the team will conduct a comprehensive, quantitative assessment of what they expect to be some of the healthiest East African reefs.
