National Geographic Live 2012/13
Marine Ecologist Dr. Enric Sala, one of National Geographic’s newest Explorers-in-Residence, left a secure post in academia so that he could take a more active role in reversing the decline he was seeing in the oceans. Growing up on Spain’s Mediterranean coast, Sala fell deeply in love with the sea as a boy. He grew to loathe the negative impacts he witnessed from overfishing, pollution, and climate change.
