    Eye of the Albatross | Reviews & Praise Winner of the John Burroughs Medal and the National Academies’ award for year’s best book Safina delivers a message full of wonder at the natural world and concern about the fragility of his subject. Eye of the Albatross: Visions of Hope and Survival – Carl Safina Eye of the Albatross. Carl Safina‘s second book (which I read after his first – Song for the Blue Ocean – and third – Voyage of the Turtle) is superficially concerned with seabirds, but, as is usual for him, dealing on a deeper level with the health and future of the world’s oceans and the life they support.
