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?

Goats, young guys in our community sleep In the Kitchen where goats sleep also. Where I was sleeping we had a lot of goats, and they urinated all over the house so in the morning I was stinking with goat urine.

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

Grazing goats around the bushes and forest, whereby I could eat the wild fruits

Now? The forests are no longer existing so I even don’t know whether I have a favorite place.

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

Goats are my favorite animal I like watching the kids of the goat running up and down, the goat meat is tender, we have a special stuff which is made from the goat bile, and waste, which is actually bitter, when well prepared it is very good with roasted meat (Nyama Choma) we call it Obosontoto in our mother tongue, and the Luo’s from Nyanza call it Ochuri

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?

Destruction of the earth to look for mineral resource, most of the people have dead due to collapse of the land, land tremor, earthquakes, Tsunamis, though they are natural calamity but we are the most factor or contributes of the happening

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

God created the environment and natural resources with a purpose so we should learn what was the purpose of God’s creation is it preservation or destruction?
