“The world is in terrible trouble. Over half the world’s population is now urbanised. Apart from rats and pigeons, they have probably never seen a wild animal. How are they supposed to feel it’s worth preserving unless they know what it is that keeps them alive, unless they understand the extent to which we are dependent upon the natural world, and that we are doing terrible things to it by our very presence?” ~ English naturalist David Attenborough in 2012

“Life is full of beauty. Notice it.” ~ American author Ashley Smith

The miracle of life has riveted the inquisitive throughout history and continues to fascinate. Understanding the coherence of biology opens a portal to comprehending the nature of existence, and thereby add meaning to our own lives.
