Pristine Seas Expeditions | Revillagigedo

The goals of the Pristine Seas project is to find, survey, and help protect the last wild places in the ocean. It is essential that we let the world know that these places exist, that they are threatened, and that they deserve to be protected. Some 250 miles (400 kilometers) south of Baja California lies the Revillagigedo Archipelago, which consists of four islands of volcanic origin: Socorro, Clarion, San Benedicto, and Roca Partida. Since 1994, they have been declared a Mexican biosphere reserve, but only six nautical miles around the islands are protected. The rest of the waters of the archipelago are subject to industrial and sport fishing, mostly targeting large ocean predators.
