Peter Conder (1919-1993) was an ornithologist and conservationist.

He was the grandson of S H Benson who started the first British advertising agency and the great grandson of Charles Digby Harrod of Harrodsmarker.

Conder was the director for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds between 1963 and 1976. During this period the Society appointed its first research biologist and membership rose from 5,000 to over 200,000.

Conder's interest in ornithology began when he was a boy at Cranleigh School, and was nurtured during five years in a prisoner-of-war camp in Germany during the Second World War. His first job was on the isle of Skolkholm off the coast of Wales, where he spent seven years as warden of the bird observatory.

In 1976 he was awarded an OBE for services to conservation.
