People must feel that the natural world is important and valuable and beautiful and wonderful and an amazement and a pleasure.
Being in touch with the natural world is crucial.

An understanding of the natural world and what's in it is a source of not only a great curiosity but great fulfillment.
It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.

Neil deGrasse Tyson
