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?

Everything we eat is lives, so I want to thank every time I eat. But it's so easy to forget!
Woods and a river near my neighborhood - Less and less, no more fish :-( sad

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

Hiking up the neighbor mountains, play around near rice fields and a river

Now? Try to hike, but not much time, so at least walking along the river, see mountains, touch the soil while planting some flowers or so

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

Cats; they look like living very free from anything. following what they want to do in a day. same as all other animals, though. so I like looking at animals. and kids also!
Horses; beautiful

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?

To make a balance with nature; we human beings had taken too much from the mother nature. we are not only living creature on the earth. I think that's why to make a balance to balance the unbalanced reality, the earth is sick. The greatest challenge now is that more should realize the reality that the earth is sick and if this situation continues we can't live. And at the same time and the future we should know really we are a part of nature and living together already. If we know that then we each know what to do for the future.

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

Do what you can do now. Live your life with joy! Do what your heart feels fun!
