Georg Wilhelm StellerGeorg W. Steller (born March 10, 1709, Bavaria [Germany] — died Nov. 14, 1746, Tyumen, [Russia]. Zoologist and botanist who served as naturalist aboard Vitus Bering's ship St. Peter during the years 1741–42, as part of the Great Northern Expedition, which aimed to map a northern sea route from Russia to North America.
During that expedition, while stranded on what is today called Bering Island, Steller sighted a number of animals not previously known to science. Included among them was a large aquatic mammal, now known as Steller’s sea cow (Hydrodamalis gigas), which was hunted to extinction within a few decades following Steller’s report, Steller's Eider, and the Steller's Jay.
