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!

Retired Dr, Master Gardener

Today's Date: 14 January 2009

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

As an adult gardener I watch bees pollinating plants as well as chatting with an older neighbor who raised bees and had an epiphany. I sudden realized just how important these marvelous insects are to our entire food chain.

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

Reading books in the rain in my tree house.

Now? I especially like visiting the National Arboretum in Washington, DC

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

I like bears.

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?

Helping improve the environment and helping to educate people on using more earth and people friendly ways to do so.

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

What is your carbon footprint? What can you do to make it smaller?
