We are delighted to announce that Enric Sala, Explorer-in-Residence at National Geographic, will be speaking after the conference dinner on the evening of Day One of the World Forum on Natural Capital. 

Dr. Enric Sala is a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence actively engaged in exploration, research and communications to advance ocean policy and conservation. His more than 100 scientific publications are widely recognized and used for real-world conservation efforts such as the creation of marine reserves.

Enric is currently working to help protect the last pristine marine ecosystems worldwide, and to develop new business models for marine conservation. He conducts expeditions to some of the most remote places in the ocean, to carry out the first comprehensive scientific surveys of these pristine areas to obtain a baseline of what the ocean used to be like. Working together with conservation organizations, Enric was key in inspiring the creation of large marine protected areas such as the Pacific Remote Atolls National Monument, USA; the Motu Motiro Hiva Marine Park, Chile; and the Seamounts Marine Managed Area, Costa Rica.

Enric is a 2005 Aldo Leopold Leadership Fellow, 2006 Pew Fellow in Marine Conservation, 2008 Young Global Leader at the World Economic Forum in Davos, 2013 Research Award of the Spanish Geographical Society, and 2013 Lowell Thomas Award of the Explorers Club. He also received the 2006 Prince of Asturias Award to Communication and Humanities with National Geographic. Enric's experience and scientific expertise contributes to his service on advisory boards of international organizations and governments.

Join Enric and over a hundred other inspirational speakers at the 2015 World Forum on Natural Capital, on 23-24 November. Book now while places are still available.
