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?

seeing a coyote in the wild for the 1st time

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

not really, my front yard (which was huge)

Now? The trail where I walk dogs on the sanctuary, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, Johnson Canyon, UT

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

Well, I love dogs, cats, and horses. But my favorite animals in the wild are polar bears and wolves. Polar bears as they are just so beautiful and massive living in such an extreme environment; wolves, because they are so close to dogs, yet are so mysterious and 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?

Global warming, and the over-use of fossil fuels. Also polluting our earth and air. Both now and in the future, if we do not cease and desist using the earth for our playground.

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

Please, please be careful and gentle. Use just the tiniest bit you can, and replace it many fold over if possible. Respect every living thing.
