Nature on Display: This exhibit demonstrated the deep connections humans and nature share. The natives where a perfect example to do this because of their connection to nature. Nature was everything to them, they lived off the land and in some cases even worshiped it. They share a connection to nature that few have nowadays. It made me feel an appreciation for the land around me because the Calusa lived in south Florida, very close to where I am right now. They derived so much meaning from the land, when now it is just being destroyed by us.
Nature and Ethics: The butterfly exhibit really demonstrates the vast amount of biodiversity on the earth. It shows thousands of different species of butterfly which really puts humanity into perspective. We always think of ourselves as the top priority of earth, when in fact it sustains millions of different species of plants and animals. This display just really shows the depth of diversity just in butterflies. It made me feel a deeper want to sustain biodiversity on earth.
