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?

I grew up in a neighborhood that was surrounded by trees. It was very common for my family to sit at the table eating breakfast and see deer in the backyard. I was always amazed by that.

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

I have always loved being in the mountains. I cannot think of a better example in all of nature for God's creativity and power when I look at a mountain range.

Now? My wife and I love weekend getaways to Western North Carolina and Virginia.

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

Any kind of monkey. They are just so fun to watch!

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 challenge is that it has become a political issue. Many liberals use it as a scare tactic and many conservatives are in denial.

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

That it is not a political issue! It is a responsibility issue.
