- About Lawrence Anthony
Albert Dishwasher, as he named himself, is an African Grey Parrot, born in captivity and raised by a woman who treated him not as a pet but as a respected member of the family.
Dish is an amazing ambassador for the natural world. We are honored to have him be our official Spokesbird.
Cooperative Ecology™ (CoEco) is a field of environmental study in which ways to understand and enhance the mutually supportive interrelationships between mankind and the natural world are explored and implemented for improved potential long-term survival for all. The moment any life form, including humans, falls away from the concept of mutual cooperation with all other life forms and the material world, their capability to survive diminishes and they become less effective.

“There is no greater imperative. Mankind’s superior intellect and deep spiritual heritage will count for naught if we fail in this quest. Life will simply pass us by as we succumb to our own devices, and more successful life forms will evolve to replace us. The fate of uncountable species that have already disappeared into oblivion after inhabiting, sometimes dominating, the Earth for millions of years bears stark testimony to this. And we are not immune.” —Lawrence Anthony

How would it be possible to restore the Gulf of Mexico, save the lives of people and reverse the nearly irrecoverable damage to this priceless marine ecosystem? Learn More about Toxic Spill Solutions

The Earth Organization was founded in 2003 by Dr. Lawrence Anthony—after repeatedly witnessing the distressing affects from growing discord between Mankind and the natural world.
