The Safina Center

MISSION: The mission of the Safina Center is to advance the case for life on Earth by fusing scientific understanding, emotional connection, and a moral call to action. We create an original blend of science, art, and literature in the form of books and articles, scientific research, photography, films, sound-art, and spoken words. We bear first-hand witness and then we speak up, we speak out, and we teach. Our work is designed to inspire and engage you to devote your time and energies to conservation of wild things and wild places.
The Safina Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit based on Long Island, N.Y., founded in 2003 by ecologist and author Dr. Carl Safina.
