Artist and Education Specialist, Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary
Seabird biologist, educator, environmentalist, and activist, Peter Winch has worked to protect the largest marine mammals from whaling, studied terns in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, and has served as an educator for the past decade with the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary. Winch’s work has taken him around the world and inspired his photography and artistic career.
