Teaching the essence of life

Yellow Swallowtail ButterflyPlanet Earth is the source of everything required for life and all we produce as a species. Failing to understand its systems and the biotic and abiotic elements found upon it denies all the ability to live a complete and wise life. When we turn our senses in the direction of the natural world, we can begin to understand both the joys and sorrows we are bound to face, resulting in a more balanced, equitable and sustainable existence for all species who dwell on this "blue marble."
