Biomimicry as a driver for conservation.
Other Possible Papers - 1) croc project. 2) zoo trip -compared to innovation at JMS 3) 3hour class take aways (interviews with participants now) 4) impact of 1hr biomimicry hike on conservation thinking.
Behvaious change for sustinability in corporate environments driven from upper management and business strategies etc - could biomimicry be an exciting and innovative drive for R&D to drive pro environmental behaviour in what and how they create.

Biomimicry Methodology out there specific for sustainable Design: Test these methodologies & tools at JMS: could collaborate with Fayemi & Kristina..... Still need to know how to define a prob in a way to look for specific bio models and to define it is such a way for a sustainable design process (so maybe I focus on the front end of process) - Tool & Methods for Prob Definition & identify Bio models - and then tools for effective exploration of bio models and concepts within a zoo environment.
Can Biomimicry be the link to conserve species that are most in need for conservation action but are not flagship species: conservation through inspiring functionality (slime mold / hag fish)..
The importance of local informal institutions (zoos, field station , museums) for bio inspired innovation, acting as microcosms for the natural world. Everyone can do biomimicry without paying for 3.8s $40,000 trips to AFRICA.

BMs potential to be a source of innovation for business, while bridging the natural world to human challenges. Zoos acting as microcosms of the natural world and a house of expertise and knowledge thus becoming incubators for innovation and tech transfer to advance BM. Biomimicry as a incentive for an industrial audience perhaps even a collaborative relationship, corporate participants gaining insight into their tech/sci issues and environmental aspects behind these and how these are connected to social issues. This connection could possibly advance to conservation action or pro-environmental behavior either on an individual or group level.
