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?

“Toninas” or porpoises in the South Atlantic, growing up.

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

The ocean, South Atlantic off the coast of Argentina, swimming deep from the beach w/ my father.

Now? Same ocean, off the coast of Argentina or Uruguay. Or the Atlantic off of S.E. Florida, where I live now

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

Too many to name…reef creatures (because I can stay “hours” underwater just looking at 1 square meter of coral surface and never tire), monkeys (for their incredible face expressions), sea turtles (they are peaceful, elusive, and prehistoric looking)…

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?

Ignorance, there is so much we need to learn! And so much we need to teach. And now as in the future, probably, population growth.

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

Teach the children to be socially responsible.
