What can you do for Giant Anteaters?

Animal Crossing

Just as the Giant Anteater relies on its keen senses to navigate its environment, we can protect wildlife by driving more carefully and slowing down on roads. By being vigilant and mindful of our surroundings, we can reduce the risk of collisions with animals crossing roads, helping to safeguard their habitats and ensure their continued survival. Let your awareness on the road be a testament to your commitment to preserving wildlife for future generations to admire and appreciate.

What does the Cincinnati Zoo do for Giant Anteaters?

The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden team partners with the Wild Animal Conservation Institute (ICAS) to promote the conservation of elusive, large animals like the giant anteater in South America. Giant anteaters and giant armadillos share their habitats with people, and ICAS works to engage community members to enable the survival and coexistence with these species and many smaller ones throughout the landscapes. ICAS studies the natural history and health of these elusive animals, as well as road development research and creating an app to utilize community science to decrease road collisions. Projects focus on how to mitigate the effects of habitat fragmentation as a result of development/road creation and human-wildlife conflict materialized as road collisions. Community science-based approaches are being used to bring the community into the initiatives and expand the data collection potential past the research teams.
