One year ago, NG Explorers Kenny Broad and Enric Sala joined business leaders, artists, non-profit founders, and others working to educate and inspire the world’s up-and-coming generation, as they met at “Summit at Sea” and looked for ways to do more to help protect and rehabilitate the ocean. (Follow Enric Sala’s new expedition to the Pitcairn Islands.)
Now the fruits of some of these efforts are being seen in exciting ways.
While the attendees at Summit at Sea gathered in the Bahamas to discuss inspiration and ocean conservation, they discovered that nearby their destination was a Marine Protected Area that had been named a decade ago, but which could benefit from increased attention and resources. As this fact inspired conversations among friends and over dinners, it proved a perfect opportunity to put their money where their mouths were, so to speak.
