Group Exhibition · Pristine Seas: Bringing the Ocean Back

Pristine Seas: Bringing the Ocean Back is a photo exhibition created by the National Geographic Society. The exhibition draws upon a decade worth of global expeditions conducted the Pristine Seas project to document and protect the ocean so it can heal, rebound and regenerate. 

In the exhibition you can see more than 60 awe-inspiring photographs from some of the most remote areas representing what remains of wild, underwater nature on this blue planet. 


MPAs and Marine Reserves

A marine protected area, or MPA, is a section of the ocean where a government places limits on human activity. No-take MPAs are the “gold standard” of protection, where fishing and all other damaging activities are prohibited, and where marine life can fully recover and thrive. They are outdoor laboratories that allow undisturbed areas to be compared to nearby unprotected areas that are impacted by human activities.

Pristine Seas’ goal is to survey and document vital places in the ocean and inspire decision-makers to protect them by creating MPAs. Partnerships with country leaders, local communities and Indigenous peoples, business leaders, and conservation organizations are critical to Pristine Seas’ success. With protection, the sea is allowed to heal and regenerate.

Pristine Seas is working with Indigenous peoples and local communities, governments, nonprofit partners, and businesses to help establish 40 new marine reserves and protect at least 30 percent of the ocean by 2030.
