About the Author

Peter Scott, son of Captain Robert Falcon Scott of the Antarctic, was born in 1909. Achieving success as a naturalist, artist and sportsman, in 1946 he founded the Severn Wildfowl Trust, now the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust, which runs nine wetland centres in the UK. A gifted communicator, Scott pioneered natural history broadcasting, and published widely. He was a founder of The World Wildlife Fund, and became the first ever person to be knighted for services to conservation and the environment. He died in 1989, two weeks before his eightieth birthday.
