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!

Professor Dr. Iajuddin Ahmed

President – People’s Republic of Bangladesh

Today’s Date: 20 February 2008

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

Doves and Mynah. My Mynah bird lived with us for over 20 years (1972-1992) and one night it died in its cage. I am still depressed and remember it.

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

Places where doves made their nests. We usually stole their nestlings for rearing purpose. Still I am sorry for my misdeeds.

Now? No answer given

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

As already mentioned Doves are my favorite as well as Mynah. I still like to rear them at home though I know it is very unkind to do.

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 and its effects. Last year Cyclone “Sidr” devastated heavily our Southern zone of Bangladesh. To face the challenge help of foreign countries is needed. People should be knowledgeable and brave and should be equipped with modern technology.

To mitigate such future problems people should be calm and use knowledge.

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

Love all the creations on the earth and let them grow naturally. I advise not to harm insects, birds, animals for their natural living. Let us work unitedly for making a friendly and habitable environment for the birds and animals on the earth.
