Walt Disney’s True-Life Adventure
Did you know caring for animals and conservation is one of Walt Disney’s legacies?
Walt Disney created thirteen nature films in the 1950s, which has come to be known as the True-Life Adventure series.
Eight of them won Academy Awards!
Animal Care Efforts at Walt Disney World
It’s easy to see why animal care is so important in Walt Disney World. Even when the parks were closed, the animal experts and caretakers were hard at work taking care of all of the animals.
We have seen many new babies being born at Animal Kingdom Lodge, including new baby zebras, a new baby babirusa born at Animal Kingdom, and a baby porcupine to name just a few!
A few of the KtP writers even saw a baby gorilla at Animal Kingdom!
New Series coming to Disney+
If you are an animal lover and ever wonder what it’s like to take care of the animals at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, you are in for a treat!
