2012 – Peter Hope-Jones

Starting his career at the newly-founded Fair Isle Bird Observatory, Peter returned to Wales in the 1960s, firstly as NCC warden at Newborough Warren and then managing nine National Nature Reserves in Meirionnydd. In the 1970s, his work focused on seabirds, and in the 1980s, he studied black grouse for RSPB Cymru. Author of 148 published works, he was first chairman of WOS, and has played a pivotal role in the development of ornithology in Wales.
