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?

I grew up in the country and have spent a great deal of time camping and hiking in the mountains of upstate NY and East Tennessee. That has been and remains one of my favorite activities. I love to be out in nature and see and experience everything around me.

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

I loved going to the Adirondacks when i was a kid

Now? Still love it up there, but pretty much anywhere in the woods where i can have peace and beautiful scenery.

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

That’s a tough one... I love animals of all kinds.

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?

we are totally destroying our planet, using up all of our natural resources and soon will have nothing left for future generations to enjoy or appreciate.

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

quit screwing them up!!!
