Author Biography - Casson Trenor
From saving the whales of the Antarctic to studying the salmon of Alaska, Casson Trenor has worked to support stewardship of our marine resources in all five oceans and countless seas. Named both a "Time" magazine Environmental Hero and an Ocean Protection Hero by Save Our Shores, Trenor has extensive experience and expertise. He has stalked the fetid warehouses of Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo, spent two months journeying by ship along the Antarctic coast, berthed on leaking wrecks off Central Pacific islands, and gone octopus fishing with holy men on the Island of Yap. In thousands of conversations with fishermen around the world, he has heard one statement repeated: "The fish are gone." In his recent book "The Whale Warriors," author Peter Heller, a contributing editor to "National Geographic Adventure" and "Outside" magazines, captures Trenor's dedication to ocean conservation through his efforts to end illegal whaling. Trenor is a main character in Heller's factual account of the exploits of one small, rusty ship determined to take on the entire Japanese whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean in 2005 and 2006. Born in Seattle and living in San Francisco, Trenor speaks five languages, has traveled to over forty countries, and holds an MA in International Environmental Policy from the prestigious Monterey Institute of International Studies.
