From the Wildlife Trust BCN: Dr Norman Moore – a life remembered

I was saddened to hear the news that Dr Norman Moore had died aged 92. When I worked for the Species Survival Commission (SSC) of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), I had the pleasure of working with Norman on the IUCN/SSC Dragonfly Action Plan. He was a lovely man and I enjoyed working and talking with him. I used to be a very keen roller skater and I remember him telling me all about the ice skating on the fens. As well as being an authority on dragonflies, Norman was pivotal in the banning of DDT. He was also the Vice Chair of the Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire – to read more about him see their article: http://www.wildlifebcn.org/news/2015/10/27/dr-norman-moore-life-remembered
