    Saving the Last Wild Places in the Ocean

    Led by Explorer-in-Residence Enric Sala, National Geographic's Pristine Seas has helped inspire the creation of the largest marine reserve in the Americas. The newly protected waters around Chile's Desventuradas Islands contain many marine species found nowhere else on Earth.

    Better Bomas Save Big Cats

    When lions and other big cats kill livestock, herders retaliate by killing cats. Sturdy livestock enclosures called bomas keep livestock safe from attack by big cats, just as they keep big cats safe from people who depend on livestock for income. National Geographic grantees helped construct more than 260 new bomas in Kenya and Tanzania in 2014. Learn how you can support their work.
