<p>Zoos are the ideal place for promoting science and environmental education, since they have the possibility of fostering biodiversity awareness and environmental values, which are necessary for global citizens. How should we develop an exhibit that meets the demand of visitors’ interest and arouses their biodiversity awareness reflecting the principles of museum exhibition?

As a result, from the aspect of cognitive learning, the exhibition contents showed a strong educational effect.

This study showed an implication that suggested how to raise biodiversity awareness in public citizens through a zoo exhibition.</p>
