Details The miracle of nature is that whenever there has been a challenge, there is an organism that has found a way to conquer it. There are just over 8.7 million described plants and animals on Earth which are essentially individual science experiments, perpetually testing out new ways of doing things in order to find a better way. There is no doubt that we have much to learn from this 4.85 billion years of natural capital accumulation. Since humans live under the same laws of nature and under the same conditions, it makes sense that we learn from the inner workings of the natural world.

Jonathan Leeming will guide you on a practical exploration of Kloofendal Nature Reserve to discover inspiration that will help us solve the challenges of our time.

I spoke at the 2020 Friends Of Kloofendal annual general meeting. I had a few requests for a copy of the presentation. Instead of emailing text, I recorded an audio file of the presentation.

All Zoomed Out?

Since lockdown, we have all discovered that Zoom and other virtual presenting platforms are like Powerpoint. You can bore someone to death, inflect torture and pain on an unimaginable level, and someone else can wow and connect to the audience. The difference is not the technology, but the speaker.

How We Treat The Environment

Just as a spoiled child demands a new toy or a bar of chocolate at the checkout counter, mankind has viewed natural resources with much the same childish bravado.

From Ethiopians starving to death in their war-torn country, commercial loggers chopping down the Amazon rain forest, and Green Peace harassing Japanese whaling ships, it seemed terrible that mankind could inflict […]

The Ego/ Eco Paradigm

The question of how much do we impact upon the environment can be tricky to answer, simply because we are rarely cognisant the consequences of our actions. So much of our impact is hidden from us either through society, or by the organisations who manufacture the products that we use. For example, consider where your […]
