Yes, because it lets you appreciate the complexity, the variety of every single lifeform. It lets you understand the uncounted millions of years behind something as small as an insect, and how living things interact when none could survive without others.
The fact of how cellular life works shows how cells, both specialised and unspecialised, work together to do something completely different that no single one could ever do, and create a form. THAT is beautiful.

The opposite, thinking 'it's just there' is what leads to lack of concern about it, seeing it as something there specifically for humans.
