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?

Tortoises in Childhood - first pet & sacred animal tribally, it taught me patience, tranquility, diet for longevity (little meat), determination.

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

I enjoyed all outdoor areas - natural - not man-made landscapes though.

Now? Same - except now I need the presence of my people around me as well to feel complete, where I grew up was in exile from my people.

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

Tortoise, for all the reasons in answer to question 1.

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 caused by unbridled capitalism fueld by worship of the Almighty dollar - instead of the Creator of the universe.

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

Mankind was created to be the caretaker of this planet - not the destroyer of it; every living thing has an equal right to exist.
