At The Safina Center, we seek to inspire a deeper connection with nature, in everyone touched by an ocean.

Led by conservation pioneer and MacArthur fellow Dr. Carl Safina, we work to create a more knowledgeable constituency for conservation.  Through Dr. Safina’s books, other writings, public speaking, PBS television series, our educational programs and Fellows, we show how nature, community, the economy, and prospects for peace are all intertwined.
