Human beings have built up a highly civilized society. On the other hand they have been having a great influence on the earth environment. The highly developed technologies change the circumstances not only in nature and in comunication, but also in moral. This is relating to the fact of decrease in the natural. The sensitivity human must have, would raise up just in nature. Moreover interest and curiosity for nature is a primitive step toward natural science. Recently the people are apt to be indifferent to nature. We should understand the past time's earth environment to look at the future's. We should live with the natural, however the civilization had much more developed. We shall be happy that a lot of people came to our museum and took an opportunity to increase one's interest in nature.
