Carl Safina

Carl Safina is the president of Blue Ocean Institute, whose main focus is using science, art, and literature to inspire a “sea ethic”—a closer relationship with the sea.

His first book, Song for the Blue Ocean, takes readers on a global journey of discovery probing for truth about the world’s changing seas, weaving adventure, science and political analysis along the way. His newest book, Voyage of the Turtle, is an impassioned account of the plight of ocean-dwelling turtles. Safina is also author of Eye of the Albatross and co-author of Seafood Lover’s Almanac.
