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?

Well, I´m a forestry engineer working on the tropics. My biggest impact I had was to know: 1. An arborescent fern 2. Golfo Dulce and Península de Osa in Costa Rica

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

-In my childhood I had a lot of places!! maybe the nearest one was the beach, like 300 mts from my house in Limón City, Playa Bonita Beach in Costa Rica -Now, umm it is difficult to choose one, I have a lot. I can not choose right now, so: 1. Osa Península, Golfo Dulce and Corcovado National Park 2. Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge 3. Manuel Antonio Park and around

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

Domestic: Dogs. Because they are friendly. In the wild: maybe Whales, because they are big and peaceful

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?

1. The biggest challenge I think is the fuel source. 2. In the future, forest depletion and food production

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

To be consistent with the good. Change from the consumerism to the share.
