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!

Today’s Date: 7 January 2009

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

cat, when i still a kid, a coward brat and bully magnet, i'm not a very confidence with myself. one day, i saw a cat, wounded, but still walk tall and confidence at all time. i learn from that cat to be confidence and brave at all time. till today

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

hmm, let see, i love grassland, so if there's a big grassland, i'll do fine over there, under a tree, a breeze of wind, a small sunshine and lovely smell, plus a good book or a nap? that will be perfect day

Now? i still love grassland, but if i can smell a good air, whether it's in my cramped office or wide ocean or high plateau or even my small room, it's great already

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

cat, or her big feline groups. they are graceful, predator but a beautiful one. they are not killer, but they kill to eat and protect. hope i don't need to kill though in real life though...

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?

new energy source, sources if needed. earth's fat (that's oil) is not that good for the future (like human, earth without fat = sick earth, and sick earth = very sick human). so we need to find a source that are easy to use, affordable by even 3rd world country and underdeveloped countries, no harm side effect (or tolerable) and compatible with today's machinery (that's tough)

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

i'm no adviser (still 22 years old, i still need to accumulate exp before any advices), but if you insist... i still don't give advices, my families don't give any advices, we give examples, so just do simple things like throwing organic and recycle unorganic and little things like that, it's suffice already
