Pete Myers received a PhD from U.C. Berkeley for work on the migratory ecology and behavior of sandpipers. This work took him from Arctic Alaska to Tierra del Fuego. In 1985 Myers co-founded the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network, which today coordinates conservation plans at over 100 sites in the western hemisphere, and during 1987-1990 he served as senior vice president for science at the National Audubon Society.
