Edward Struzik is an award-winning writer and the author of Swamplands:Tundra Beavers, Quaking Bogs, and the Improbable World of Peat, published by Island Press. Calling for an appreciation of these wild places, the Wall Street Journal praised the book as “adventurous natural history.”
His previous two books, Firestorm: How Wildfire Will Shape Our Future and Future Arctic, also were published by Island Press. Writing in the New Scientist, Alun Anderson said, “Future Arctic should be the book that introduces [Struzik] to the rest of the world because his unique voice needs to be heard.”
Ed speaks widely about environmental issues and is an eight-time winner of the Canadian Science Writers Association Science in Society Journalism Award, and the winner of the Atkinson Fellowship in Public Policy, North America’s biggest prize in journalism. He is frequently called upon to write and speak about the Arctic and has delivered keynote addresses and presentations to international conferences and forums on Arctic issues. He also sits on the Arctic Advisory Council for the World Wildlife Fund.
