    Smile looking to nature for inspiration

    These Canadian scientists aren't the only ones looking to nature for inspiration. More and more inventors are also discovering that the natural world contains many useful designs.
    Could I say "turning to nature for inspiration" instead of the underlined part without making a change in meaning? Thanks.

    I think it will change the meaning: "looking" implies a deliberate intention of finding; "turning" rather implies chance finding.
