Rico Moore’s journalistic work is presently focused on telling stories about the environment — wild animals, natural resources, policy, people, etc. — in and around the western United States of America. Areas of interest include environmental and climate justice, wildlife and environmental policy, and the unique stories that bind these spheres together.
Rico completed an interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts degree with a focus on critical theory and literature at CU-Boulder. His graduate work, a Masters of Fine Arts in poetry at CSU-Fort Collins, investigated the role and function of language in poetry as it establishes and mediates relationships between people and the natural world. And along with experience working in the sciences, conservation and advocacy, he is well-positioned to report on complex, interrelated and evolving stories that impact the living earth and our relationship with it. Rico is also a fifth generation northern Coloradan and an avid outdoorsman, hunting and fly-fishing since youth. He lives with his wife and their cat in Fort Collins.
