Enric Sala, leader of National Geographic’s Pristine Seas project, took time out from packing for a voyage to the Galápagos Islands to answer a few questions about his goal to protect the ocean’s last wild places.

A widely published marine ecologist who grew up on Spain’s Mediterranean coast, Sala is seeking to identify isolated places that warrant protection from overfishing. His expedition to Kiribati’s southern Line Islands in the remote South Pacific is featured in the September issue of National Geographic magazine.
