Ieva says: “Every form of life is perfect, irreplaceable, and necessary for the coexistence of life. Nature has been and will be for many years after our existence, but the reckless use of nature can irreversibly change it, which is unfortunately already happening. In order to preserve what we have now, we must each become a conscious resident and contribute to the preservation of nature through our actions.”
