Oceana Magazine: Spring 2011
From Actor to Activist
In March, Oceana board member Ted Danson released his first book. Co-written with journalist Michael D’Orso and published by Rodale, “Oceana: Our Endangered Oceans and What We Can Do to Save Them” is an insightful and comprehensive look at our oceans – and how to protect them for future generations.
Danson is well known as a versatile film and television actor, but few people know how he became an ocean activist. In this excerpt from the book, he explains the origins of his passion for ocean conservation.
