What is Biomimicry?
"Biomimicry is a practice that learns from and mimics the strategies found in nature to solve human design challenges — and find hope along the way."
- The Biomimicry Institute
The Biomimicry Institute was co-founded by Janine Benyus — a biologist, author, innovation consultant, and self-proclaimed “nature nerd.” She may not have coined the term biomimicry, but she gained popularity for her 1997 book Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature. She has popularized the concept of biomimicry through books, TEDtalks, articles, peer-reviewed research papers, and more.
