The author of the most powerful and important book ever written in human history, unless you're just visiting planet Earth.


Background Information

I'm a wildlife artist turned conservation author. My primary area of expertise as a marine biologist is sharks. Several years ago I made a shocking discovery. It has turned the scientific community and certain governments on edge. It concerns everyone on the planet. And it is rapidy affecting our world in a way that most people cannot yet fathom. A bit scary but also something that is repairable if we act.

   The whole situation and the solutions are outlined and discussed in my book "The Sixth Extinction" available through my main website: http://erikbrush.com/ . My second book is a bit different. Well rather dramatically different. In an effort to garner better understanding and interest in sharks and the situation faced by these animals as well as other marine life, I wrote "Anthroview". As the name hints, it is an Anthropomorphic (This is when one ascribes human thoughts and feelings to an animal.) story of the birth, life, and death of an Oceanic White Tip shark. This is a short story but has been quite well recieved. The book is being considered as a potentially educational tool for life science classes in the Southern California School system.

The Sixth Extinction opened with a short story that was only a few pages long. I wanted to draw the readers interest and pull them in. The story is a simple reflection of one of the last human beings on the planet as he is dying due to the affects of a Global mass extinction.

    The reader response to this short story was quite striking and remarkable. I have had endless requests to write a science fiction novel based on what readers read. I figured in holding with the conservation effort why not? I am currently working on my next book "The World Enders". It has been a change from the scientific works and my more academic efforts.

Accomplishments

I am a pro-shark conservation advocate. In my capacity as an author, writer, and wildlife expert (including but not limited to sharks) I have been a strong campaign writer and support a huge variety of some of the worlds most powerful marine conservation and intervention organizations.

To date I have successfully supported the Bill that made a landmark first in Hawaii by getting all shark food products banned in the state of Hawaii.

I also supported and contributed to the protection of Lemon sharks that was voted upon unanimously in February 18th of this Year. Lemon sharks are now protected from both commercial and recreational fishing in this state.

I was responsible for all of the letters, petitions, and paperwork that were used by the Global Shark Initiative under Katrien VanderVelde agains't the California based dog and cat food company "Canine Caviar". These direct efforts lead to them pulling their dog chews made from endangered thresher sharks.

Only a month later I was active in the petition writing and letter campaign that caused "CitiBank Hong Kong" to remove it's adds supporting the use of their card to purchase shark fin soup and shark products from the Maxim restaurant Chain.

My book "The Sixth Extinction" has purchased and recognized by some of the worlds top shark experts as well as a variety of celebrities. It is owned and read by Director Steven Spielberg, Talk show host Oprah Winfrey, Shark Scientist Dr. Erich Ritter, TV Star, Film Maker & Shark Expert Jupp Kerckerink, Captain Paul Watson founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Captain Pete Bethune, Hollywood Mogul Ady Gil, Director/Film maker ("Sharkwater") Rob Stewart, and more.

Additional Information

I a currently working on several marine projects including assisting in Protecting Pilot whales and stopping the hunt for these and other small cetaceans in the Faoroe Islands. I have been helping to get the Governments in Thailand to set aside marine preserve parks and promotion of eco-tourism and shark diving. I am also working on getting the WEECs Convention passed into law in the United Nations and the European Union. This is a powerful new conservation law that I drafted and then fine tuned with the help of an International Marine Attorney. The WEECs Convention is introduced to the world public in Chapter 8 of "The Sixth Extinction". As a special courtesy I have included it in the note section of my Facebook page. I will be looking into moving from Florida to California next summer as I have many speaking and working engagements that center on the West Coast.
