Google Features Nature’s Engineers for Earth Day

The world’s most famous tech company isn’t just appreciative of human engineers, and in honor of Earth Day, Google has a new feature that focuses on the engineers found in nature.

Google Green already has a number of ways to use their products and technology to go green, but their focus on Nature’s Engineers acknowledges that we can learn a lot from nature:

“This Earth Day, we’re celebrating something close to our hearts, engineers. Whether it’s a towering aspen or a tiny mushroom, nature has plenty to teach us. We’re taking a look at six of our favorite outdoor innovators to see how we can follow their lead and treat the earth better.”

According to the company’s blog, the photos come from National Geographic, and the site shows nature’s ride sharers, community builders, energy savers, reuse experts, composters, and more, in an attempt to illustrate how we can all learn from nature and take simple actions to care for the environment.

For example, did you know that aspen trees build their own communities?

“Aspen trees find strength in putting down roots as a group, or colony, creating a system that supports a whole field of trees instead of just one. The community helps the trees to connect and share vital resources like water and nutrients.”

Each example is followed by an actionable item, such as links to composting videos on YouTube, or download links for Google Maps for using public transportation to get around.

Explore Nature’s Engineers and get inspired!
