Where does one even begin when paying tribute to one of the most influential scientists of our time?  Dr. E.O. Wilson passed away at the age of 92, leaving behind him a wealth of information that included theories, truths, and intricate maps for a better future.  

 

Dr. Wilson was able to articulate scientific research into language that children and adults alike could grasp, process, and put into practice.  The E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center will forever be indebted to him for his teachings and his love of our natural world.  

 

We, at the E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center, believe in preparing future generations with knowledge to positively impact natural environments, not only in the Florida panhandle, but worldwide, wherever our visiting students may venture throughout their lives.  Dr. Wilson was quoted in 2012 when referring to our planet and human governance saying, “I’m optimistic (about the planet’s future), I think we can pass from conquerors to stewards.”  Dr. Wilson coined the term “Biophilia,” which means “the love of all living things.”  

 

Our founder, M.C. Davis, believed in Biophilia and Dr. Wilson’s teachings and put into practice his own love of all living things by creating the E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center.  Mr. Davis and Dr. E.O. Wilson will both have a lasting and profound impact for generations to come.  

 

Thank you Dr. Wilson for inspiring adults like Mr. Davis, naturalists like the team at the E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center, and children who hold the environmental future in their hands.
