“As a student of Ed Wilson, I learned how powerfully humans are drawn to stories. Biodiversity 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, are all designed to convey the importance of biodiversity; essentially, to make people fall in love with the unexpected in nature.”
