Today marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day! Disney has so many great resources to help us honor our planet, learn about conservation, explore in our own backyards, follow fellow conservationists, and enjoy our favorite Disney characters celebrating our planet. We have rounded up and put all the great resources here in one spot!
Magic Through Nature
Disney has offered a new “Magic Through Nature” program where Disney has showcased their steps towards conservation in the Disney Parks and their commitment to animals that find their home in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
We have also been given the opportunity to ask all of our animal and conservation questions to Dr. Mark Penning, Vice-President of Disney Animals and Science & Environment at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
You can post your questions @Dr.MarkatDisney.
Check out the video that is hosted by Dr. Mark Penning as he takes us on a “Behind the Scenes” look into the conservation efforts of the Disney Parks.

Disney Channel is offering special programming today in honor of Earth Day. Nat Geo and Disney Channel have created Interstitials that follow the daily activities of Cast Members at Disney’s Animal Kingdoms.

Special Message from Imagineer Joe Rohde
Imagineer Joe Rohde offers an Earth Day greeting to us all as we celebrate Earth Day at home.
He encourages us to watch outside our windows and take in the beauty of nature. No matter where our home resides, we are all united by the life that is nature all around us.
He has also been taking us on a virtual tour of Animal Kingdom, giving us a peek into the beauty of the park. You can read more about that HERE.
