David T. Suzuki is geneticist, world reknown as a popularizer of science and ecological issues. He has written over thirty books and innumerable articles, and hosted many TV and radio shows on science, including CBC's Suzuki on Science, Science Magazine, Quirks & Quarks (radio) and The Nature of Things. His PBS eight-part series, The Secret of Life, was widely praised in the US and internationally, as was his special Cyberspace and his five-part series, The Brain.

Dr. Suzuki lives in his hometown of Vancouver, BC with his wife Dr. Tara Cullis, and his two children. He is currently a professor of zoology at the University of British Columbia and a senior associate on the staff at the SDRI (Sustainable Development Research Institute) at the University of British Columbia. He is also founder and chair of the David Suzuki Foundation, an environmental non-profit organization registered in Canada and working to find and communicate practical ways in which we can live within our planet's productive capacity.
