Pete Morris

Pete Morris lives in Lancashire, England with his wife Nina and sons Jack and Josh, and is both a Birdquest Senior Leader and Deputy Manager of the Birdquest office.

He has been birdwatching for as long as he can remember, growing up on the North Kent Marshes and at Dungeness. After graduating in Environmental Science at the University of East Anglia in 1987 he spent a year working at English Nature before taking off overseas. He lived for a time in Australia, returning to Britain to work as an environmental consultant.

Over the past decades he has travelled very extensively in the Western Palearctic (Europe, Western Asia and North Africa), the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, Australasia and the Pacific Islands, Africa, Madagascar, both North and South America and the Caribbean.

Pete has published many articles and photographs from his travels, and also given illustrated lectures. Pete is senior author of the well-received Birds of Madagascar: a photographic guide (1998).
