Do you love wildlife? Take an educational tour at Animal Kingdom and learn how the cast members take care of 1,500+ animals at Disney’s Animal Planet. A portion of the tour proceeds is donated to the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund. **ALSO, Don’t forget to see Disneynature’s Monkey Kingdom this week (by Thursday, April 23rd) and a proceed of your ticket will help endangered animals!!
During the Backstage Tales tour, you’ll learn all about the unique challenges involved in helping them thrive as you:
Explore backstage animal-housing areas.
Visit the Animal Nutrition Center and see how over 4 tons of food are prepared and distributed each day.
Tour the state-of-the-art veterinary hospital, where you may even witness animals being treated.
Stop by the Animal Programs Administration building and learn how Disney promotes global wildlife conservation and animal well-being.
I was able to go on a Backstage Tales Tour myself. I learned so much! At one point of my childhood, I wanted to grow up to be a veterinarian. I would have loved this tour as a child.
A few of the animals that we viewed on our backstage tales tour were:
Random fact I learned: Elephants are afraid of bees! To keep elephants out of farmers crops, beehives are set up along the outside of the farms. If the elephants cross a line, a wire is tripped causing the beehives to stir and send the bees toward the elephants. This scares the elephants and they warn their friends to stay away. This has helped keep the farmers happy and they no longer have to hurt or kill the elephants. Plus they make money from the honey!
After learning so much about nature and habitats, and learning about all the endangered species and conservation projects going out throughout the world, I highly encourage you to consider making a contribution to one of the many conservation funds and help save an animals life!
Be sure to go see MONKEY KINGDOM in theaters NOW. If you can get to the theater by this Thursday, April 23rd, a portion of your ticket will help an endangered animal. You will love this heartwarming movie:
MONKEY KINGDOM is NOW IN THEATERS!!
Be sure to see Monkey Kingdom opening week (April 17 – 23)! By purchasing tickets during opening week, Disneynature will make a donation in your honor to protect monkeys and other endangered species in their natural habitats. Projects support programs across Indonesia, Cambodia, and Sri Lanka.
