Danielle Moore

A courageous leader, champion for justice, and environmental activist always keen to carry the hard work of sustainability forward.

Danielle Moore lived her life full of hope and believed in creating great change for a more just and environmentally sustainable planet. In her 24 years, she touched the lives of countless people across Canada and around the world. She was a courageous leader, champion for justice, and environmental activist always keen to carry the hard work of sustainability forward. Tragically, Danielle’s life was cut short on March 10th, 2019, when flight ET302 crashed in Ethiopia – Danielle was on her way to represent Canada at the United Nations Environment Assembly in Nairobi, Kenya.

Wherever Danielle went, she brought people together to form strong communities based on inclusion, love, and hope. Danielle was, and always will be, the embodiment of love and hope.

In the midst of changing times, in the midst of a looming future, we can also revel in the idea that such a change/collapse can bring upon a new way of life. So I choose hope, and that’s what I hope to share.

Stories of Danielle's Impact

Planting to remember at FortWhyte Farms

This year we are planting lavender and forget-me-nots in memory of Danielle Moore. As beneficiaries of the Danielle Moore Fund, we plan to honour her memory with a splash of purple, Danielle’s favourite colour, to the gardens and fence borders around the farm.

Watering seeds of hope

The contributions of the Danielle Moore Fund were invested in a new drip irrigation system, which means less water waste and more direct watering through root level water supply to the vegetables and herbs in the gardens at FortWhyte Farms.
