On June 5, the Brazilian model Gisele Bündchen also took to Instagram to share photos of her interacting with nature. “Mother Nature is our greatest teacher,” she wrote in the caption. “She shows us that everything is interconnected and interdependent. Her power comes from her diversity and it depends on it for its survival. Just like with people, our differences are our strengths, and we get stronger when we work together.”

“Nature doesn’t judge or divide. She nurtures. She reminds us that every form of life is sacred, and important, and has its own special role in creating balance, so all of life can flourish,” she continued. “Nature has the answers--and by observing her, and mirroring back her example, we can all thrive. This is our home, and our choices create our future.”

She also wrote her message in Spanish. “A Mãe Natureza é a nossa maior professora. Ela nos mostra que tudo está interligado, interconectado. Seu poder vem de sua diversidade e ela depende disso para sobreviver. Assim como com as pessoas, nossas diferenças nos complementam e nos tornamos mais fortes quando trabalhamos juntos.”

“A natureza não julga ou divide. Ela nutre. Ela nos lembra que toda forma de vida é sagrada e importante, e tem seu papel fundamental para trazer equilíbrio para que toda a vida possa florescer. A natureza tem muitas respostas - e, observando-a e seguindo seu exemplo, podemos todos prosperar. Esta é a nossa casa - e as nossas escolhas criam nosso futuro.”
