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?

In my life, I flashback, this small animal called Rat. When I was young it used to bite my nails, and in the morning that is when I could realize that my nails have been chewed by a rat, without feeling any pain.

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

I used to love visiting my grand parents and basking in the sun with mothers who had new born babies.

Now? At the moment I don’t have a favorite place, but I like interacting with little children whenever they come to the Kiosk, I feel so good acting like them.

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

My favorite animal is a Bee, Bees whenever they are, they seem to be busy. I wish human beings were committed like bees, and then our economy could have improved

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?

Economy which as resulted to poverty, poverty of high rate is going to be there and people are going to steal from each other

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

People should use what they have to get what they don’t have. We have to work extra hard in order to improve our life style.
