An impassioned and inspiring story from the creator of the award-winning documentary Sharkwater.

Editorial Reviews

"Save the Humans is...a project of passion--part memoir, part rallying cry, it documents how [Stewart's] love of the natural world made him a conservationist and asks how we can save other species if we can't save ourselves." —CBC Books"Chock-full of sobering statistics about the massive depletion of fish populations as well as the wide-reaching threat of ocean acidification. It also details Stewart's adventure-filled, nature-loving life." —Winnipeg Free Press"Part Michael Moore, part Jacques Cousteau, Rob Stewart is an interesting hybrid with enough integrity, and enough filmmaker hustle, to swim with the sharks and make us love them." —The Vancouver Sun
