Dawn Pier is a formerly landlocked Canadian who is a surfer, writer, environmental biologist, and universal truth seeker (not necessarily in that order). She's seen more of the Canadian arctic than your average polar bear, where she flew in little planes and smaller helicopters to reach out-of-the-way places to collect dirt and plants for food chain contamination studies. The results were scholarly papers, a Masters degree and the end of her first marriage. In 2002, she moved to Mexico to follow her dream of learning to surf and ended up founding a community conservation organization to protect the most important coral reef in the Sea of Cortez. Currently, she divides her time between Baja Mexico and the SF Bay Area. In response to an inner burning that has never let up, she is finally following the call to work on her first book, a memoir detailing her adventures in conservation, falling in and out and back in love and living off the grid in a tiny Mexican village. She publishes a blog when she can tear herself away from her WIP and encourages you to come and visit.
