We and millions of other species have evolved to respond to beauty; we should keep it safe.umans aHH
I would suppose that the concept of beauty is unique to humans as a function of intelligence. However, it exists in nature in part as a multitude of evolved strategies of other species. The "beautiful" scent of the lilac attracts the butterfly to the work of pollination. The lively colours of the butterfly may have many evolved uses. They attract mates, but they also advertise to potential predators that the butterfly is unpalatable. We humans see and smell the beauty. It is an important part of our role in nature to preserve it. Great beauty is almost always fragile to the testosterone storm, although it may otherwise be robust for survival.
