What would extraterrestrials want with or from the Earth?

If aliens from an advanced culture or civilization are visiting this planet, in droves, as UFO data indicate, why?
Does Earth have something that a supposedly gazillion other planets in the galaxy or, certainly, the universe doesn’t?
All the elements, chemistries, and exotic materials, including water, abound in outer space scientists tell us.
So what keeps ETs reconnoitering our planet?
Could it be the diverse flora or fauna, and especially we humans?
That seems unlikely, as science tells us, or tries to, that diverse life and sentient beings are plentiful in the cosmos; that’s why science, in its many forms, is seeking life elsewhere.
And Earth is so remote – such a backwater – in the great scheme of the cosmos, why is it, according to acolytes of the ETH (extraterrestrial hypothesis), the place of places for alien visitors?
Earth is special for we inhabitants, a unique repository for grand human creativity and effort. (Those who are attuned to the humanities can cite all the great works that are part of the human oeuvre.)
But what alien culture could appreciate Michelangelo, Beethoven, or Shakespeare et al.?
Even highly sentient, brilliant, advanced beings could never fathom anything created by mankind except, maybe, its edifices.
Even human behavior would be a constant mystery, something even humans don’t fully understand.
And the behavior of animal, even plants, would be baffling to visitors from worlds elsewhere in space and time.
Don’t give me the nuclear explanation. Atomic power is primitive and would be to beings that are able to traverse the cosmic void to come here.
I can’t, for the life of me, think of any reason that ETs would come here, and in the numbers that UFO reporting seems to indicate.
Nope. We are not being examined or spied upon by advanced sentient beings flying about, willy-nilly in craft we call UFOs.
