Michael Charles Tobias (born June 27, 1951) is an American author, ecologist, mountaineer, and filmmaker. His more than 35 books and 100 films have been distributed, translated and/or broadcast internationally. Many of his projects are collaborations with his wife, Jane Gray Morrison.

His work has focused on interlocking themes as population and the environment, ecological aesthetics, international conservation and the sanctuary movement. One of his foremost themes is what he has termed "the anthropology of conscience", emphasizing humanity’s capacity for non-violence, compassion, and tolerance. This has resulted in what they have generally described as "the sanctuary movement" , Dorji Wangmo Wangchuck, then Queen of Bhutan, described their efforts as being “invaluable for policymakers and scientists...(and) inspiration for the next generation of young ecologists wanting to make a difference in the world.” Tobias has been an advocate for animal rights and in the mid-1990s was a recipient of the Courage of Conscience Prize. In 2004 Tobias was honored with the Parabola Focus Award for his body of work in defense of the Earth. Ingrid Newkirk, co-founder and President of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, described Tobias as "one of the world’s great souls." Examples of his interdisciplinary approach include collections of essays such as A Parliament of Minds: Philosophy for a New Millennium and A Parliament of Science: Science for the Twenty-First Century in which he invited philosophers, scientists, and ethicists from around the world to contribute. For his enormous contribution to peace, nonviolence and cruelty-free living, he was presented with the Peace Abbey Courage of Conscience Award in 1997.
