G. Carleton Ray, Ph.D., focused most of his 60-year career on a cross-disciplinary approach to coastal marine research and conservation from an ecosystem perspective. He studied herpetology, ichthyology, the central roles of natural history and physiological ecology, and has engaged in research and conservation in polar, temperate, and tropical environments collaborating with colleagues from these disciplines, and marine mammal acoustics, coastal and estuarine ecology, biogeography, biodiversity, and conservation science. Ray established the Bahamas
National Trust, the world’s first land-and-sea park, and was instrumental in helping to draft the U.S. Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972. Ray served on the initial Committee of Scientific Advisors of the Marine Mammal Commission. He authored/co-authored more than 300 papers, reports and several books.
