Morgan Moore is Audubon Southwest’s campaign coordinator for the Western Rivers Action Network, based in Phoenix, Arizona.
Audubon’s Western Rivers Action Network (WRAN) envisions a future in which water management systems are adaptive to the challenges of climate change and include the needs of birds, the environment, and marginalized communities. Morgan works to grow and equip this network of advocates, building on past wins and increasing the effectiveness of Audubon's conservation advocacy to protect water resources for people and birds. She coordinates and supports communications, community events, and strategic planning to advance this mission.
Morgan believes that we can’t work towards sustainable and thriving systems unless we try to be honest, equitable, and just. She is trying to incorporate these values more into her work. Currently, those efforts manifest in the creation and dissemination of content and opportunities that are accessible, welcoming, and reflective of and valuable to the communities in which she works. Internally, with Audubon’s government affairs coordinator Tykee James, she co-founded the organization’s People of Color Affinity Group to uplift staff of color. She would like to use her privileges to support people in and outside of Audubon; she still has a lot of room for growth, and always will.
A fifth-generation Arizonan from her mother’s side, Morgan is a graduate from Arizona State University with a bachelor's degree in Sustainability. She has always loved birds, but she started on the serious journey of birding on June 29, 2013, when she and her father went on a guided bird walk at the grand re-opening of Picture Canyon in Flagstaff. Gardening, hiking, writing, painting, and stargazing are a few of her other interests.
