People Who Make A Difference: Pete Moore

Local News

There is an impressive group of people in the Rio Grande Valley that are striving to make a positive impact on our environment, and it would be difficult to find anyone that has volunteered more of their time than Pete Moore from Harlingen.
Pete Moore, “I have been steeped in the outdoors my entire life, and I am very passionate about it, and I just decided that I am going to do whatever I can do to make it better.”
The list of accomplishments on Pete Moore’s ongoing resume is astonishing. He is a past president of the Valley Sportsman’s Club, past president of the Gladys Porter Zoo, a founding board member of the Valley Land Fund, founding board member of the Friends of Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge and the list goes on.
“I have been involved in some really exciting projects. One of the things I am very happy and proud of is the South Padre Island Birding and Nature Center, because I lived on the Island for over 20 years. I was involved in that project for probably 20 years. We tried to put that project together, and finally we were able to do that, with the gracious help of the Economic Development Corporation on the island and of course the town.”
He is currently serving on the state board of the National Audubon Society.
“We do a lot of wonderful things down here in South Texas. Texas Audubon manages 178 coastal islands for nesting birds as well as the Sabal Palm Sanctuary in Brownsville.” Said Moore.
And, as a certified Texas Master Naturalist, he has created an oasis for birds and butterflies in his Harlingen backyard where he has befriended the free ranging Chachalacas.

“Aren’t they great. Chachalacas are my favorite bird.” saying about his favorite bird.
My big brother Pete is certainly doing his part to make a positive difference in the Valley outdoors.
“It’s been a labor of love. I just love being involved.” Added Moore.
