What I Want to Do:


 
Earth Survey Project - Please Participate!!

Ever since I was a child, I have been very interested in these topics, and I try to keep current with all relevant issues such as energy, climate change, biodiversity conservation, ecotourism, sustainability, etc. 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 to date have gotten back almost 900 responses. I have gotten responses from scientists, environmentalists, religious leaders, schoolchildren, villagers in Nairobi, a few world leaders, and many more. There is no deadline for the project, so please feel free to take your time in responding if you need to.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to answer my survey. The responses are being posted online at the blog I created for the project, http://earthsurvey.blogspot.com.  In the future, I hope to do something more with the results, such as a book or documentary, although as of right now I am not sure of the format or timeline for that.

You can access the survey online at http://tinyurl.com/nx4ng7 or if you prefer, I can send you the questions in an email message as well.

Contact information will not be included- only your name and title/organization will be posted. I am more interested in personal views, not necessarily official statements, and there is a disclaimer on the site that states that the views expressed are personal and not to be taken as official views. Should you prefer to remain anonymous, I can do that as well.

Please distribute this as widely as you can, as I am very interested in getting responses from members of the local community, business leaders, government officials, religious leaders, etc., and I appreciate any assistance you can offer in getting this in as many hands as possible! If you have a newsletter or local paper that would be willing to post my project information, that would be greatly appreciated, as I really want to make this a global project involving people on all levels.

Thank you very much for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you!  Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions or comments about this.  I can be reached at jeremyjtaylor@yahoo.com

About Me I grew up on a farm in Upstate NY, and earned a BS in Wildlife Biology from SUNY ESF in Syracuse in 1997. I have worked in the bird departments of the San Antonio Zoo and Disney's Animal Kingdom, and also worked as a state wildlife biologist in the Everglades, as well as an ecologist and environmental educator for Audubon International. I worked for Stewart's Shops (convenience store chain) for about 2 years, and have been working as a Pet Care manager for PetSmart since August 2008. I also have been working on my Earth Survey project, which you can visit at http://earthsurvey.blogspot.com. Since December 2004 I have been living in Ravena, NY. I am interested in many things, including nature, the environment, photography, history, gardening, travel, and learning about different cultures and religions. Currently (August 2011) enrolled in grad school through Marylhurst University to earn an MBA in Sustainable Business with a focus on Green Development.
