Peter Steyn's passion for birds began at an early age and his first bird photograph was taken at 13. His pictures have appeared in numerous scientific and popular publications, and in his nine books. His published research, especially on birds of prey, has been widely acclaimed. In 2011 he was awarded the prestigious Gill Memorial Medal for an outstanding lifetime contribution to the knowledge of Southern African birds and in 2012 he received the Steven Piper Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to raptor conservation and research.
