Eco-conscious pescatarians have something to look forward to in 2011. Ted Danson of Cheers
and Bored to Death
fame has been keeping busy in real life as an oceans activist, and now plans to write a new book offering “a celebratory and cautionary look at the world’s oceans,” according to publishing house Rodale
If you watched The End of the Line
, the eco-documentary about overfishing that hit theaters last year, then you’ve heard Ted speak up for environmental issues, since the actor narrated that film. A board member of Oceana, the world’s largest nonprofit dedicated to marine issues, Ted’s been a long-time advocate for the world’s oceans — and this time plans to bring eco-education to the public in book form with the help of journalist Mike D’Orso.
According to Rodale, which will publish the book, Ted will include his personal story about how he became an activist for ocean preservation in “a visually stunning package that combines photos, charts, and graphics with a gripping narrative.” Look for Ted’s book in bookstores in winter 2011; part of the proceeds of the book will benefit Oceana.
