Ecosense for Living

Innovation & Biomimicry

Season 4, Episode 4 of 4

Sometimes Mother Nature could use a boost and when we work with her natural systems, she can reward us with a blueprint for success! EcoSense explores three creative and wildly different examples of biomimicry. We visit Mushroom Mountain and learn how the potential uses of fantastic fungi go way beyond salad - including as organic pesticides, medicine and even a possible solution to world hunger. At the Emory Water Hub, mimicking Mother Nature leads to cleaning 400, 000 gallons of water per day - without using the city's water treatment system. And at Georgia Aquarium and Zoo Atlanta, we see how organizations all over the country band together to use data to ensure survival of many diverse species.
