It is inevitable that at some point in life you'll find a place in nature that makes you feel like you've discovered heaven on Earth. Your assessment of "heaven" might be due to observing an individual organism and becoming overwhelmed with its capabilities and all that we do not know about it. It could also be abiotic factors such as the sheer beauty of the sunlight hitting the water, or the outstanding colors in the clouds at a sunset. It could be learning that bamboo has a specific compression rate similar to steel, or that the Nopoli rockclimbing goby climbs waterfalls thousands of times it's own body length. Whatever inspires you to believe you have found a paradise, will also fuel you to conserve.
