Dr. Rafe Sagarin, Program Manager

Rafe, a marine ecologist and environmental policy analyst, is unveiling GREAT plans for Biosphere2 Ocean. But titles can be deceiving. This innovative scientist and educator has studied responses of marine communities and wetlands to climate change, illegal fishing, pollution, and other human impacts. Rafe uses unusual data sets from writers, naturalists, artists, and gamblers to re-assemble historical patterns of ecosystem change, including reconstructing changes to the Sea of Cortez since the expedition of John Steinbeck and Ed Ricketts. He is the author of a fabulous, well written, exciting book called Learning from the Octopus. Now he's bringing new life to the ocean exhibit at Biosphere2. Got any doubts? I sure don't.
