It is well known for everybody that a lot of ecosystems in our planet are in danger as a lot of species are close to their extinction. Usually, when we think in this terms we always have in mind the Arctic, some mammals… but we usually have tendency to forget about the oceans.

Oceans are habitats in risk too affected in most part for the pollution, fishing… However, the rates are alarming: almost a 90 percent of the big depredators in the oceans is gone. For this reason National Geographic has found a solution: as we already have environment protected areas in our lands why do not have them in the seas? They, in fact, are called Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) but, unfortunately only a 2 percent of our oceans it is protected. Although they are working to try to have more square meters of the sea protected. Please, take a look to the work of Paul Rose in the Pristine Seas expedition to discover the work that this people is making to protect little corners of our oceans. #protecttheoceans #PristineSeas
