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?

When I am away from people, artificial sounds and scents I am relaxed and at peace I can think more clearly

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

By a pond in rutland UK

Now? camping at Sandy Bay, Saint Helena Island

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

Donkeys because they are friendly, and strong and I believe that they have a fine sense of direction, if one was lost and injured then they are strong enough to get one home

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?

now we are creating rubbish tips which although they are covered still contribute bad or even poisonous substances which eventually end up in the water table the challenge is in getting people to see that utilising these tips will have a bad effect for the future

in the future we need to find alternatives for our basic power requirements

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

Recycle everything that you possibly can
