Hello, I just recently joined the group, and wanted to introduce myself to everyone. My name is Jeremy, and I live in a small town in upstate New York, not too far from the family farm where I grew up. I have a B.S. degree in wildlife biology, and have worked as a zookeeper, wildlife biologist, and environmental educator. I am very interested in different religions and cultures from around the world, and am especially interested in the intersections between religion, culture, and the environment. Since the summer of 2006 I have been conducting a short survey about the environment, am posting the responses on a blog I created for the project, http://earthsurvey.blogspot.com I have gotten back nearly 400 responses so far, and would welcome your participation if you are interested. I am especially interested in the religions and cultures of the Asian region, and the environmental issues associated with them, which is part of my reason for joining this group. If anyone knows of any texts/documents/articles that deal with this topic, please let me know! They can be contemporary pieces, historical pieces, or original religious documents. I am trying to expand both my knowledge of these religions and my library of related information.
Looking forward to being a part of the group and learning from all of you!
