John Moore was introduced to the fauna and flora of Southern Africa at an early age. He remembers his veterinarian father coming home with a menagerie of creatures: rabbits, pigeons, hedgehogs and even snakes.
Throughout his childhood, he and his twin brother explored and played in the undergrowth of urban gardens or bushveld. This instilled a life-long love and appreciation for wildlife.
