“It’s such an honor to receive this award. Whether I am writing a column, broadcasting on the radio or out granting a child’s exotic animal encounter through our ‘Wild Wishes’ program, I am always looking at things through the filter of how we can inspire young people and take better care of our natural resources,” Moore said.

“This award inspires me to push harder and go further down this path.”

Moore has won more than 100 awards for writing, photography, radio and conservation.

He was named a “Hero of Conservation” by Field & Stream magazine and his nonprofit project “Kingdom Zoo” won nonprofit of the year in 2016 from the Greater Orange Area Chamber of Commerce.
