Briliant Robert!!! Very fascinating. Good study of this biomimicry can change the dynamics of different subjects.

Rob, I thoroughly enjoyed reading your blog this morning. Looking to nature to help with more sustainable ways of living is certainly not new, but is more actively being studied in light of the world’s population growth and resulting impact on climate and natural resources. I had read about the development of the bullet train in Japan and their using the aerodynamics of the bird’s beak to solve noise and efficiency problems, although if one looks at the TGV trains of Europe as well as the bullet trains in China, the same basic design was employed.

I wasn’t aware of that Denise, thank you for sharing! Perhaps that were all inspired by the same design? I’m glad you enjoyed the read.

The story about the Bullet Train is one I had forgotten , thanks for reminding

Great article. There is so much that human animals can learn from our nonhuman animal kin. Perhaps, one day we will earn the way that elephants honor the individual while thriving in community, the fluidity of gender in hyenas, or the some other such revelation:-)

There is still so much to learn! We just need to have patience and persevere.

Wow Robert, what an enlightening blog 👌🏻💕. Just goes to show how much man takes for granted in the lessons to be learnt from our surroundings. For all our so called might, we have a lot to learn from nature. Truely an inspiring piece. 🙏🏻

I love these examples of bio mimicry. It gives me hope for our species and the planet that we can adopt more of these practices.

These are just a few, there are many more out there!

lovely article. If nature were left on her own in her ability to regulate herself things would be perfect

Biomimicry is a very exciting field, and has already led to some very creative ideas for human life.
