National Geographic Explorer in Residence Enric Sala has spent a lifetime exploring and studying some of the most critical natural habitats in our ocean. Dr. Sala, Director of National Geographic's Pristine Seas project (which has helped to protect almost 6 million sq km of ocean - an area over half the size of the United States), shares the story of his scientific awakening and his transition from academia to activism. His life’s work of protecting the ocean tells a compelling story: More sharks signal a healthier ocean; crop diversity, not intensive monoculture farming, is the key to feeding the planet; the more species, the less risk of another pandemic. In his new book, The Nature of Nature, he makes a clear case for why protecting nature is our best health insurance, why it makes economic sense, and why it is our moral imperative.
