“[Save the Humans] is 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
“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.”
