Auguste von Bayern is a zoologist who seeks to understand how animals, in particular crows and parrots think. Her research interests comprise innovative and flexible reasoning skills and vocal learning abilities of these birds.

Auguste graduated in Zoology at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. After completing her PhD on the social intelligence of jackdaws at the University of Cambridge, she became a postdoc at the Zoology Department of Oxford University where she investigated flexible tool-related cognitive abilities of New Caledonian crows. Since 2014, she leads the Comparative Cognition Research Group at the Max-Planck-Institute for Ornithology and runs a research station on Tenerife where her team investigates the cognitive abilities of different parrot species comparatively, collaborating with the Loro Parque Foundation, which keeps the largest collection of parrots in the world.

Auguste is keenly interested in wildlife, biodiversity conservation and environmental protection. She is chair of the Förderkreis Biotopia, Naturkundemuseum Bayern e.V., an initiative for the realization of an international Life Sciences museum in Munich, which will raise awareness for environmental issues and enthuse children for nature and life sciences early on.
