|Roger Tory Peterson Studio|
Have you ever looked out your window and watched a bright red cardinal hop around your yard? It can’t help but make you smile. Roger Tory Peterson, whose studio we have replicated at the Aquarium was not content to stop there. He had a deep love for wildlife and the environment; that became his passion and his life’s work.
Roger was an artist and ornithologist who traveled the world to study wildlife. He used his artistic talents to bring his studies to life on paper. If you’ve ever picked up a “Field Guide to Birds” to find out what was that strange bird you were looking at then you have shared in Roger Tory Peterson’s work. He wrote the very first “Field Guide to Birds" in 1934 and continued updating them until his passing in 1996.
