HOLIDAYS AT THE ZOO: KNOWING TO PRESERVE
Keywords:Environmental Education, Arruda Câmara Park, Environmental awareness.
Holidays are a period of significant movement in zoos as a whole due to their greater frequency and thus the knowledge of their services for the population, as well as the offer of possible environmental education practices by the professionals who are part of the staff of these environments. Thus, this work aims to provide a brief account of the importance of raising public awareness through zoos. It has a descriptive and bibliographic nature, with research being carried out on educational platforms through the internet and thus applying to the experience of the activities carried out at Park Arruda Câmara, located in the city of João Pessoa/PB, Brazil. The activities carried out by the professionals present (biologists, zootechnicians, ecologists) in the park were able to assist in several points aimed at environmental awareness of an educational nature, where in a playful way it could interact with both children and adults. These activities have a greater interaction during the holidays and can thus demonstrate greater effectiveness, due to the greater number of people reached. This can show us the greatness of the importance of environmental education in people's daily lives.
