David Seaborg is an evolutionary biologist with a graduate degree from the University of California at Berkeley. He showed that organisms evolve as feedback systems and that the genetic code is not optimal for evolution, although close to it.

He has taught biology at all levels from elementary school to college to senior citizens.

He is founder and President of the World Rainforest Fund. The Fund has saved rainforest in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, saving habitat of the Bonobo chimpanzee, the closest relative of humans. It also saved rainforest that has among the highest biodiversity in the world in the Amazon Basin, and rainforest in Borneo.

He wrote a popular poetry book. He is an inspiring speaker who lectures on evolution and environmental issues.

He wrote a book on his theory that life made Earth better for life, and increases biodiversity. His theory posits that ecosystems maximize biodiversity, and that all species are ecosystem engineers with a net positive impact on other species and their ecosystems.
