The Rafe Sagarin Fund for Innovative Ecology was founded to honor and carry on the work of an insightful scientist, creative free spirit, and engaged human being.

“The ability to turn ideas that were once only conceptual into practical tools applicable across disciplines is one reason that twenty-first-century ecology is so exciting and so powerful.”
