Biomimicry Walk

Sat Nov 18, 08:00 - Sat Nov 18, 10:00

Kloofendal Nature Reserve


The miracle of nature is that whenever there has been a challenge, there is an organism that has found a way to conquer it. Want to live a life of zero waste? Nature has done it! What to live in the desert with no water? Nature has done it? Want to live a more meaningful and prosperous life? Nature has done it!

There are just over 8.7 million described plants and animals on Earth which are essentially individual science experiments, perpetually testing out new ways of doing things in order to find a better way. 

Since we all live under the same laws of nature and under the same conditions, it makes sense that we learn from the inner workings of the natural world to overcome the challenges of modern life.

The Biomimicry Walk examines those aspects of the natural world that we are all familiar with, and uncovers the extraordinary in the ordinary, and the possibilities that are all around us. The walk includes a short interactive workshop activity that examine how nature offers us solutions to overcome the biggest challenges of our time, and also, what can we learn from nature to live healthier, happier and more meaningful lives.

If you have ever wondered why flowers always clean? How termites use passive cooling to air condition their mounds. How nature deals with waste, and how venomous animals are providing cures for some of the most widespread lifestyle diseases of modern life? Then the Biomimicry Walk is for you!
