The Wildlife Discovery Club is a voluntary association of people that follow the general principles of humanism, have similar vital values and people interested in bringing the feasible contribution to the improvement of the world around.
We, the club members, can be different from each other, have distinctions in age, profession, social position, follow different aesthetic directions, but we share general principles and attitude toward life, nature and people.
The first principle. Aspiring harmony. Man. Society. Nature. Here are three fundamental phenomena, interests of which must be harmoniously balanced in this world. Balance violation of sides’ interests results in destruction to each of them. The harmony of mutual relations provides happiness to a person, development of society, prosperity of nature.
The second principle. Respect for naturalness. Naturalness belongs to nature, normal logic of development, ease, sincerity of our conduct. Violation of naturalness results in subtraction of a man from the world, and to hostile attitude toward other people, society and nature. We talk about naturalness, implying respect to natural laws of man’s development, society and environment, respect to life as a natural miracle on the Earth in any of its displays.
The third principle. Understanding the events’ intercommunication and the motion of time. The past, the present and the future are the links of one chain - time. On one hand every link is presented by events, happenings, which are going on and will continue in the future. Sometimes it is hard to define their direct connection. But as though it was not unobvious for us, this connection of events and links of time exists. And that is why people are responsible for the future - children, society and nature. Cognizing the past, being honest today and building foundation for the future is our principle.
The fourth principle. Perception of reality and our possibilities. There are a lot of things in the world that may hurt a man, community or specific part of nature. Multiplied, these phenomena threaten people and nature on a large scale. Understanding the fact that it is required to resist the unnatural course of events is not enough to protect outward things and future practically. Great work on the maintenance of our natural and humanitarian values can be carried out only through the feasible actions, private insignificant affairs. The cleanness of soul, good relations between the members of a family and order in a house, help to someone who is near - whether it is a man, a plant or an animal – these are the things that help to the solve global problems and lead to general prosperity.
- We are not idealists, but we have ideals.
- We are realists, but we think that without ideals realism becomes cynical and leads to a deadlock.
- We unite, but we give rights to be special to everyone.
- We respect the unicity of every person, every society, every time and every natural phenomenon. And we suppose that everything in the world is interconnected by nature.
- We consider that a man is the part of nature. And at the same time we are sure that a major mission is given to the man and humanity: to save naturalness and world prosperity by realizing the processes from the high point of the unique intelligence.
