Nature Manchester Weblog

This is a blog about the redevelopment of the Manchester Museum’s current Mammal Gallery. The current gallery is one of the most popular in the museum and is unique in Manchester. It was designed by the same architect as the Natural History Museum in London. We have a really exciting new project to bring out the best of the gallery- the beautiful architecture, fantastic collections and exciting stories; the gallery is expected to open in mid 2011. Contributors to the blog are members of the team that are working on the development of the gallery’s content.

Although not specifically about bio-inspired design, this blog contains a wealth of information about the collections of the Manchester Museum.  At the bottom of the page is a list of categories that can be used to find posts of particular interest.  A number of posts such as Bioblitz in Whitworth ParkComplexity and the Comma and Good news about wildlife! describe activities.  The latter post mentions "The Open University is running a fantastic site called ispot which helps anyone identify the wildlife they have seen."
