Meet David Suzuki - Scholastic Canada Biography
Meet David Suzuki: scientist, television host and environmental activist!
Boyhood fishing trips gave David Suzuki an early appreciation for the natural world — but his childhood was far from idyllic. His family lost everything when the Canadian government’s racist measures forced them into a Japanese internment camp. But David went on to become a scientist and professor. As host of The Nature of Things with David Suzuki, he was among the first to raise the alarm on how human behaviour endangers life on Earth.
And to this day, David continues in the fight to save our planet.
