Peter Vaughan

An ‘ornithological enthusiast’ from a young age, Peter has spent much of his time travelling around Australia, including his home state of Tasmania, searching for rare and cryptic birds. In particular, these travels have taken him out to the continental shelf off Eaglehawk Neck numerous times, leading to a fascination with seabirds.

Having recently graduated from an Honours project at the University of Tasmania researching Gadfly Petrels, Peter has turned this fascination into a scientific and conservation calling. In his spare time he enjoys volunteering for citizen-science projects and going birding with friends, taking great joy in being out in nature and appreciating the wonder of wildlife with others.
