David Takayoshi Suzuki CC, OBC (born 1936) is a Canadian geneticist who has attained prominence as a science broadcaster and an environmental activist. He is also a co-founder of the David Suzuki Foundation.
David Suzuki has been the host of "The Nature of Things" since 1979. As a biologist and geneticist, he has been very conscious of the nature of evolution and growth. An ardent and vocal environmental conservationist, Suzuki writes a weekly column in The Toronto Star and is a social activist for environmental causes. One of the longest-running television shows in Canadian history, The Nature of Things has aired continuously since 6 November 1960 as an hour-long general science program.

Early in his research career he studied genetics, using the popular model organism Drosophila melanogaster (fruit flies). To be able to use his initials in naming any new genes he found, he studied Drosophila temperature-sensitive phenotypes (DTS). (As he jokingly noted at a lecture at Johns Hopkins University, the only alternative was "damn tough skin".) He gained several international awards for his research into these mutations. He was a professor in the zoology department at the University of British Columbia for over thirty years (from 1969 until his retirement in 2001), and has since been professor emeritus at a university research institute.
Suzuki is the author of thirty-two books (fifteen for children), including Genethics, Wisdom of the Elders, Inventing the Future, and the best-selling Looking At series of children’s science books.
