The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster is proud to present two new exhibits highlighting biomimicry, an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies.

Biomimicry New England’s exhibit, “Innovations Inspired by Nature,” will teach visitors how knowledge gained in learning from nature is the foundation for sustainable innovation. In addition to how marine animals have informed biomimicry, visitors to the museum will learn how spiders warn birds by weaving strands that reflect ultraviolet light into their webs, how a new hair color dye was inspired by a beetle and how “swarm logic” utilized in bee communication was used to develop air conditioning units that communicate in medium-sized buildings.

“A Seal’s World, Beneath Cape Cod Waves,” an interactive exhibit by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), highlights the seals and other marine animals found beneath the waves of Cape Cod waters. This exhibit also explains biomimicry and how humans have borrowed from marine animal designs to develop innovative products.
