There was another exhibit besides the butterflies that was a room filled with skeletons of animals. Through this exhibit I caught a glimpse of life outside of my generation and saw a very different world. I saw a group of creatures that had been greatly affected by humans. I felt like they had not be respected in the way that Leopold understood. I felt sad that these animals no longer existed and that they seemed fake in a way. I also felt frustrated with humanity that they could continue to allow things like this to continue to happen; innocent animals dying at our hands.
As I walked through the museum I saw a very different side of humanity and the world we live in. I saw a selfish world that is very arrogant and narcissistic. Others did not act in the same manner. There were several who were just amazed at the creatures themselves and didn't look beyond their skeletons. Other people seemed bored and uninterested. I felt like the museum did a very good job of connecting the visitors to nature because there were opportunities to be outside in actual nature such as gardens of the butterfly exhibit and be surrounded by live nature. However, they also presented a past nature in a way. one that wasn't alive but still has an impact on our lives today.
After my visit, I felt a slight moral obligation to help nature in a way that Leopold imagined because our world is not respected in that manner and that needs to change. Nature should be more respected, especially the life that exists in nature.
