A qualified nature conservationist, Sue Swain’s work has taken her from the Gold Fields Environmental Education Centre at Cape Point, to Addo Elephant National Park, to Working for Water projects in and around Port Elizabeth, and to the Garden Route National Park. Sue’s primary focus has always been on environmental education and social ecology. Sue’s deep passion is biomimicry. She is the founder and executive director of BioWise, a social enterprise that promotes the practice of biomimicry. As a certified biomimicry educator and practitioner, Sue has been immersed in this field since 2006. Sue conceptualized and coordinated the concept design of a Biomimicry Discovery Park for the Garden Route and has also developed a ‘bio-wise’ model for towns that focuses on ‘earth-savvy’ living. A thought leader who believes we are capable of so much more as a species, Sue has extensive experience as a biomimicry educator, having presented & lectured on biomimicry to more than 180 special interest groups, schools & tertiary institutes, businesses and all spheres of government. A more recent venture in this regard saw her invited to present a series of lectures on The World in December 2018. An adventurer at heart, Sue backpacked up through parts of Africa in her late 20s to experience more about life in general, did voluntary conservation in Skaftafell Nature Reserve in Iceland and climbed Kilimanjaro to raise funds for Animal Anti-Cruelty.
