Cheryl Perkins’ blog on her recent biomimicry teachings/ learnings at the San Diego Zoo was featured on the San Diego Zoo’ Biomimicry homepage.

Biomimicry is a new discipline that studies nature’s best ideas and then imitates these designs and processes to solve human problems, also known as “innovation inspired by nature”, according to the Biomimicry Institute based in Missoula, Mont.

“Innovative ideas have long been inspired by what we observe in nature, and I believe that what we can observe from animals in particular can give us insight into brand new inventions and technology,” says Perkins in her post.
