François Péron (1775 - 1810) was a French naturalist and explorer. In 1801 Péron travelled to Australia as a naturalist on the expedition of Nicolas Baudin. With the artist Charles Alexandre Lesueur he took over the duties as naturalist after the death of the expedition's zoologist Maugé de Cely. Together they collected over 100,000 zoological specimens.
