The Catesby Trust was established to continue the study of Mark Catesby. Part artist, part adventurer, part scientist, Englishman Mark Catesby was a pioneering figure in the scientific exploration of the New World. Begun more than 50 years before the American Revolution, his Natural History of Carolina, Florida & the Bahama Islands was the first fully illustrated study of North American flora and fauna.
