“As a student of Edward O. Wilson, I learned how powerfully humans are drawn to stories. Biodiversity, for me, is the backdrop: the seemingly small behaviors of ants; the formation of human societies; the parallels between forest canopies and ocean ecosystems. My story-telling, whether through scientific publications, books, museum exhibits, even stand-up comedy, is designed to convey the importance of biodiversity; essentially, to make people fall in love with the unexpected in nature.” – Mark Moffett
