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!

Cosmas Nguya

Executive Officer - Wildlife Conservation Society of Tanzania, Arusha Branch

Today’s Date: 18 December 2007

1. What interaction with an animal and/or nature in your life has had the biggest impact on you?

-Through study tours to the national parks
-Looking at various pictures and movies about animals and nature

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

No! I did not have a favorite place in the great outdoors.

Now? Yes! Now I have such favorite places.

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

My favorite animal is a giraffe. Giraffes are very polite and are rarely heard although they have a variety of sounds. Giraffes sleep for a very short time – hardly for 12 minutes in a day and they normally sleep standing up (interesting).

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?

The greatest environmental challenge facing us now is global warming/climate change. The greatest challenge in the future will be the environmental destruction.

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

People especially youth should be aware of and respect and care for the environment to make the world a better place for living. The spirit and dedication to making this world a better place for all of us to live is an essential or a must. Good environment for good living.
