Abstract

The present practical research activity proposed to evaluate the use of taxidermied animals and a scenario of trampling assembled as a practice in Environmental Education to raise awareness of drivers to combat the trampling of wildlife in the urban roads of João Pessoa-PB. This study was carried out in November 2021, in the Zoobotanic Park Arruda Câmara. Approximately 300 visitors were approached during three days of activities. The following species were used: Forest Cat; Forest Dog; Iguana; Sloth; Snake; etc. All species commonly run over by cars. During the approaches, we verified the lack of sensitivity and the appearance of the animal in heavy traffic. There is a need to raise awareness in visual format and engineering interventions on the roads that cut through the green areas.
