The Butterfly Rainforest exhibit helps us step out of our ordinary lives. In a typical urban or suburban area, people do not get vivid interactions with nature and its wildlife to such a large extent. By observing the nature of the Butterfly Rainforest exhibit, we are able to understand and apply many principles to our lives. For instance, observe this tree of various butterflies:
Each is a different size, color, and shape, yet they are all differing variations of the same species: butterflies. Just as diverse as these butterflies are so is mankind. We are comprised of people from different nations, of different cultures, of different religions, of different appearances, yet, we are all the same species: mankind. As different as we may seem to be, we must remember what we do hold in common, our humanity, and remember to treat all mankind with the same respect. We cannot let our physical and cultural differences separate us. We should allow them to make us unique. We should overcome our differences and learn to inhabit and interact peacefully on this planet, just as the varied butterflies do in their small enclosure.
