Described as the "father of conservation", Peter Scott led a crusade for endangered wildlife that captured the imagination of an entire generation and inspired many people to care about animals and their natural environments long before it was fashionable to do so. Behind Scott's charm and single-minded devotion to his chosen causes lies a complex character.
