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!

Communications Department, the Jane Goodall Institute

Thank you for your interest in the Jane Goodall Institute. We would love to take part in your survey, however we simply do not have time at this moment and on short notice. Dr. Goodall is currently on a world tour, which makes things very busy here at the Institute. However, many of the questions presented in your survey are addressed in Dr. Goodall's books. It may be helpful for you to consult these books; they are available at all bookstores and our web store Reason for Hope would answer many of the questions you posed. Hopefully, this will provide you with some assistance. We apologize that we cannot be more involved at the present. We appreciate your interest in wildlife, the environment, and Dr. Goodall.
