For Explorer Tara Roberts, stories come alive when we see ourselves in the characters. Her work centers on helping people, especially women and people of color, imagine and experience themselves more fully through the power of story.

"One of the most staggering [statistics] that I’ve helped uncover is that we have produced 8 billion metric tons (MT) of plastic on this planet since 1950 (equal to 80 million blue whales) and we have had to manage 6.4 billion MT of that as waste—yet we have only recycled 9 percent of it," says environmental engineer Jenna Jambeck. We're pleased to welcome her as the scientific co-lead for our work to save our planet from plastic pollution.

Yesterday, our @natgeopristineseas team welcomed President @sebastianpinerae of Chile aboard the Chilean Navy’s vessel, OPV Fuentealba. Chile and Argentina have proposed the creation of a marine protected area around the Antarctic Peninsula, one of the least altered marine ecosystems on Earth. The findings of this Pristine Seas expedition will provide scientific support for the proposal, which could help safeguard marine life in one of the most vulnerable areas on the planet. 📸: @marcelo_segura_photographer / Presidency of Chile. #insidenatgeo
