Abstract: Assessing local people's knowledge of endangered species is important not only for the planning and implementation of environmental education programs, but also to address community-based conservation issues and guarantee an effective engagement of local residents in conservation efforts. A questionnaire-based study conducted in Alejandro de Humboldt National Park assessed local people’s knowledge of the endangered Cuban Solenodon (Solenodon cubanus). From this it was found that although children seem to be better informed than adults with respect to the Cuban Solenodon, more needs to be done to educate both age and groups alike. This study also highlighted local residents’ positive disposition to actively participate in the Cuban Solenodon conservation effort.
