David Seaborg

David Seaborg

David Seaborg (born 1949) is an evolutionary biologist; as well as a peace activist, author and a leader in the environmental movement. He serves as director of the World Rainforest Fund,[1] the Seaborg Open Space Fund, and the Greater Lafayette Open Space Fund (a conservancy raising money to purchase open space in the Lamorinda region).


Seaborg is the son of Helen L. Seaborg and Nobel Laureate Glenn T. Seaborg (who discovered plutonium among many other accomplishments). He graduated from University of California, Davis, with a degree in zoology.[2]

David Seaborg conceived, and helped secure passage by the Berkeley City Council, of an ordinance banning the use of old growth rainforest and redwood in all products used by the city of Berkeley. This ordinance also required all businesses contracting with Berkeley to stop using old growth rainforest and redwood in any products or services Berkeley hires them to use or perform, or in any product they sell the city. He is currently working with the Berkeley city council to secure passage of an ordinance banning the use of plastic bags in grocery stores, and plastic newspaper wrappers, in that city.[3]

He had some difficulty getting an IPO allotment.[4]

He recently wrote a book of poetry titled, Honor Thy Sowbug (2008).[5]

David Seaborg resides in Walnut Creek, California.
