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!

South Padre Island Dolphin Research and Sealife Center, Texas

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

Researching our wild dolphins of South Padre Island

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

Yes, I lived in Germany, Connecticut, Arizona, Texas and Massachusetts as a child and love the outdoors in all those places. I was very fortunate to have parents who loved the outdoors and were horse whisperers.

Now? I spend everyday on the waters of the Laguna Madre Bay with my wild dolphin family and thru our sealife center our mission is eco friendliness.

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

My Dolphins are my passion

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?

Saving habitat is the greatest environmental challenge we face now and will be greater in the future as human demands increase on natural resources. Eco tourism can be the answer for many who are now exploiting their natural resources to preserving them.

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

Teach the Love for nature and how to take care of it above all to the next generation.
