“Perhaps it is because in my own life “family” has always been important, that I am attracted to creatures that exhibit so-called “family values”. To me, a family of otters is more endearing than a lone mink. In evolution ,the interaction between nurture and nature gives an advantage to those that can teach their young by passing on tips about living. This applies also, of course, to human families. We must introduce our children not only to the magic in nature, but to our important connection to and ultimate dependence on it. The more they are encouraged to observe, marvel, record and delight in their surroundings, the more likely they are to revere and protect it as they become adults.” – Robert Bateman
