Author Biography

BEN RAINES is an environmental journalist and filmmaker. A longtime newspaper reporter, Raines has won more than two dozen awards for his coverage of environmental issues and natural wonders in Alabama and on the Gulf Coast, and coauthored several peer-reviewed papers published in scientific journals. He wrote and directed The Underwater Forest, an award-winning film about the exploration of a 70,000-year-old cypress forest found off the Alabama coast. Raines also wrote and produced the documentary America's Amazon, which has aired on PBS stations around the country and been distributed to public schools across Alabama. His underwater film work has appeared in documentaries on the Discovery Channel and National Geographic TV. Raines co-authored the book Heart of a Patriot with US Senator Max Cleland, which chronicled Cleland's journey from triple amputee to the Senate. Ben is a graduate of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts with a degree in filmmaking, and is a US Coast Guard-licensed captain, giving tours of the Mobile-Tensaw Delta and Alabama's barrier islands. He lives with his wife and son in Fairhope, Alabama.
