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?

I'm not sure. Looking at the insides of a turkey one thanksgiving and realizing where lamb came from started me on a path to veganism.

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

The local creek where I played.

Now? Any place beautiful

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

When I was a child it was the snow leopard. Now, I'm very fond of dogs because I love interacting and experiencing them.

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?

The greatest environmental challenge is human apathy and selfishness. Also the current system we're in where it's very hard to change things.

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

Live simply and lighting. Enjoy the world rather than stuff. Think about the total repercussions of your choices, not just the immediate ones. Learn, learn, learn -- don't be afraid that it might make something you did in the past seem unnecessary or even wrong.
