After working as an English teacher at Christ's Hospital, and then as an Anglican clergyman near Liverpool, UK, Peter and his wife
Miranda moved to
Portugal in 1983 to establish and run A Rocha's first field study centre and bird observatory. In 1995 the work was given over to national leadership and they moved to
France where together with national colleagues they oversaw the establishment of two other centres while travelling to resource the growing movement of Christians active in nature conservation. Since 2010, Peter and Miranda have been based in the UK.
