“It is not just about taking wonderful photographs ... but it is mainly about raising awareness that if we do not stop harming nature, we will lose precious things and memorable moments. And unfortunately, when destroyed, nature cannot be repaired or replaced. It is more than a click. It is a movement. It is art!” – Fernanda do Valle
