Thanks to my sister Michelle McIlroy for designing the logo!


Ever since I was a child, I have been very interested in nature and the environment. I have a B.S. degree in wildlife biology, and have worked as a zookeeper, wildlife biologist, and ecologist. I am conducting a brief survey of world leaders, government officials, religious leaders, corporate CEOs, environmental groups, wildlife experts, and others regarding nature and the environment. I am also very interested in religious views, customs, and beliefs from around the world, and the interactions between religion, culture, society, and the environment. This is something I am doing out of personal interest, and is not connected to any group or organization. I have been working on this project since the summer of 2006, and hope to eventually turn it into a book and/or documentary. I am hoping to make this into a global project, with responses from all segments of society. Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions or comments. If you have not already done so, I hope that you will consider taking part in my project, and please spread the word to anyone you think might be interested! Thanks for stopping by!

1. What interaction with an animal and/or nature in your life has had the biggest impact on you?

Experiences of oneness with Nature through Nature communion since childhood.

2. Did you have a favorite place in the great outdoors during your childhood?

3. As a former zookeeper, I would love to know what your favorite animal is, and why?

Cats of many types .... life long affinities, companionship, spiritual connections.

4. What do you think is the greatest environmental challenge facing us now, and what do you think will be the greatest challenge in the future?

greatest environmental challenge at present is lack of awareness and corrective regarding humankind's negative impact on the Circle of Life on the planet.

greatest challenge in the future is the problem of overpopulation by humans and the need to have sustainability that benefits and maintains the Circle of Life.

5. If you could give everyone one piece of advice regarding the environment and our natural resources, what would it be?

Be an informed voter when it comes to environmental positions and records of politicians ... and vote in candidates that have a good environmental record and positions. ... and VOTE!
