Disney Animal Kingdom – level 3
For 25 years, Disney’s Animal Kingdom has been leading worldwide conservation efforts to increase the populations of threatened animals and restore their habitats.
With one of the world’s largest veterinarian hospitals, the park cares for all animal species, not just the big charismatic ones. The Animal Nutrition Center staff oversees 1,500 different diets and delivers 10,000 pounds of food to animals every day. The Disney Conservation Fund has directed 120 million dollars to help save wildlife. The team designs wildlife and animal habitats in the parks, such as Wishing Star Lake, created for struggling bird populations in Shanghai Disney Resort. The hope is that the threatened and endangered butterflies, including the monarch, will thrive in pollinator gardens across all the Disney properties.
On Earth Day, the conservation experts encourage everyone to grow a pollinator garden to help care for their local animal kingdom.
Difficult words: conservation (protecting earth’s resources for future generations), charismatic (likable and naturally drawing attention), pollinator garden (a garden designed to grow specific nectar and pollen-producing plants).
