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 me and my sister were climbing trees I was really far up and I fell off the tree and then I grabbed a branch and started swinging back and forth and I got a giant bruise.

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

Yes, my favorite place is going down to my swamp!

Now? I’ve always had a friend tree since I was 3 and I love to play with him and climb him

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

I love all animals and they are all unique but my most favorite animal is a seal because I think they are so cute and their personality is cool and that they have blubber. It’s cool how they can survive in the cold weather and they are unique.

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?

I think that the most bad thing that is now is global warming and in the future I think it will be gas prices.

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

What I would do is make there not be any animal abuse and that we should also stop littering.
