In the current study, we used bioinspiration educational programs for adults, taking place at the zoo as part of lifelong learning. Bioinspiration is an interdisciplinary methodology in which biological principles are applied to human challenges with a sustainable development emphasis, through innovative design. We used hands-on activities with wildlife to satisfy participants’ interest and curiosity to nature, to engage them with science and biodiversity conservation.
