Sir Peter Scott has achieved fame as a painter of wildlife, as the founder of the Wildfowl Trust, and as one of the world's leading conservationists. OBSERVATIONS OF WILDLIFE is both a collection of paintings and a self-portrait of the man who created them. The 105 paintings and drawings span a continuing career of over 40 years - from 1937 to 1980 - and include works completed all over the world, depicting other animals as well as birds. Scott's pictures are complemented by a series of extended captions describing their settings and their zoological backgrounds.

Observations Of Wildlife book. Scott's work Sir Peter Scott, founder of the Wildfowl & Wetland Trust (WWT), is one of the most influential figures in conservation history, but much of his enthusiasm for wildlife was most visible through his paintings of nature. Observations of Wildlife showcases a colourful collection of some of his finest pieces of artistry, drawing from forty years of his life. Scott's work both as a conservationist and artist has achieved international acclaim and inspired generations, and his two passions are elaborated in detail in this book.

Sir Peter Markham Scott, CH, CBE, DSC & Bar, FRS, FZS (14 September 1909 – 29 August 1989) was a British ornithologist, conservationist, painter, naval officer, broadcaster and sportsman. The only child of Robert Falcon Scott, he took an interest in observing and shooting wildfowl at a young age and later took to their rearing and breeding. He established the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust in Slimbridge in 1946 and helped found the World Wide Fund for Nature, the logo of which he designed.
