Marine Ecologist
I grew up loving the ocean and its creatures, and now I work to highlight, explain, and solve problems facing the oceans' wildlife. Publications include the books Song for the Blue Ocean and Eye of the Albatross: Visions of Hope and Survival. I also co-authored the Seafood Lover's Almanac.

My conservation work has been profiled in the New York Times and in the Bill Moyers television special "Earth on Edge," and has been recognized by the Pew Scholar's Award in Conservation and the Environment, a World Wildlife Fund Senior Fellowship, the Lannan Literary Award for nonfiction, the John Burroughs Writer's Medal, and a MacArthur Prize. I am president and co-founder of the Blue Ocean Institute, which seeks to change people's relationship with the sea.
