Linking Journalism with the Web of Life

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 more than
700 responses, both via email and postal mail. 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!

Up to almost 900 responses at this point- please consider taking part in my project and helping me to spread the word. Since this is something I am doing out of personal interest, without the backing or any institution or organization, making people aware of the project and getting them involved has been somewhat challenging... Would certainly appreciate any assistance that you have to offer in spreading the word through your various networks.... I can also send the questions out as an email file if that makes it easier. Thanks!! And please feel free to add me as a friend- always looking to expand my network!
