As we near the end of Earth Month (and what a fantastic Earth Month it has been!), I thought I would share a brief new video about our conservation efforts that we just completed in partnership with the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund.
We started showing the video just before Earth Day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Guests can see it when they visit Conservation Station at Rafiki’s Planet Watch, and, of course, find out more about these efforts at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, The Seas with Nemo & Friends, Disney’s Vero Beach Resort and when they travel on Disney Cruise Line ships.
We knew we wanted to include Walt Disney in the video. After all, it is thanks to Walt that conservation and the environment are such a rich part of the Disney company’s history–a passion that continues and is being built upon today.
During the course of producing the video–after hearing how perfectly Walt’s words fit the thoughts we wanted it to convey–it seemed only natural to have Walt help narrate the video.
Enjoy—and remember, every day is Earth Day!
