Ideas for zoos, museums, libraries

Public attractions like zoos, museums, and libraries can use animals tracks to enhance the experience they offer visitors.

Paths to exhibits

Use stickers or stencils to mark the path between destinations.


Display life-sized models of paw prints or trackways near exhibits and points of interest.

Gift shops

Sell matching merchandise in the gift shop – stencils, stick-ons, customized stickers, bumper stickers or tee shirts with a message like “I tracked the (animal) at the (location) Zoo.” or “I tracked the dinosaurs at (location) Museum.” Make the animal tracks an income generator as well as additional education and entertainment.


Decorate walls and floors in children areas. Have matching stickers for promotional events.

Games and activities

Encourage visitors to match the animal with its footprint. Create games like footprint lotto.
