"Nature is an infinitely diverse mosaic. Every single piece –animals, plants, mushrooms and even bacteria and viruses- plays a transcendent and irreplaceable role. It has taken thousands
of millions of years to bring about the magnificent world where we live. Humans have now changed its equilibrium to a more than critical situation, where we all are endangered. Its indescribable
diversity of life is at high risk, and we depend on this diversity for food, energy, medicine, shelter, recreation and much more. But, beyond our survival needs, we do not have the right to
destroy nor to alter this unparalleled masterpiece of millions of creatures.
Now it is time to make a decision. We have to choose whether our attitudes and activities will lead to Nature’s destruction –and ours, of course, as a part of it- or to its preservation. There is no other puzzle like this in the whole Universe, nor will we have a second opportunity. The pieces are in our hands." -Bricenio
