The Florida Museum of Natural History History has a vast variety of enlightening elegance. My journey through this museum opened my eyes and helped me to view the world through a whole new perspective. As you read through this Spark story I hope you visualize and connect with the exhibits and enjoy this experience as much as I did.
Nature and Ethics: One of the parts of the museum that caught my eye was the section on the species that have gone extinct. Walking through and seeing all of the different types of beautiful creatures that have been wiped off of this earth, I felt a sense of sadness. To think that, at one point in time, we all shared the Earth together peacefully. Now, according to the museum signage, 99.99% of all species that have ever been on this are now extinct. This opened my eyes and showed me that if we don’t all work together, countless other species might go extinct, including ourselves. Upon talking to some of my class mates, they felt the same way. Some even added that our children could be seeing animals such as tigers or penguins in these extinction exhibits. This part of the museum definitely reinforced my agenda to do the little things like recycle and do my part to try to save this planet and all creatures that share it with us.
