British Dragonfly Society 

The British Dragonfly Society (BDS) was founded in 1983 by a small group of dragonfly enthusiasts and scientists. The Society has grown substantially since that time and the current BDS membership of about 1,500 is spread the length and breadth of the country, as well as into Europe and beyond. We have three main aims: to carry out and support research on dragonflies, to conserve dragonflies and to engage the public with dragonflies and their wetland habitats.

Norman Moore Award Fund

This fund was established by the BDS in 2003 and named in recognition of Norman's contribution to the Society and in particular to the conservation of dragonflies by the establishment of the Dragonfly Conservation Group. He was a founder member of the DCG and its first Convenor.
