This week's theme is all about Disney Nature. Disney Parks celebrates Earth Day every day, just the way Walt Disney would have wanted it, through numerous programs in the parks and in the community. To celebrate Earth Day and Disney's Animal Kingdom Park's birthday I'd like to share a few shots of The Tree of Life in Disney's Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World and a few animals that you might discover on one of my favorite rides, Kilimanjaro Safari.
The Tree of Life project was started in the late 80’s and opened on April, 22, 1998, Earth Day. This beautiful iconic symbol symbolizes the beauty, diversity and grandeur of our animal life here on Earth.
"You've probably heard people talk about conservation. Well, conservation isn't just the business of a few people. It's a matter that concerns all of us. It's a science whose principles are written in the oldest code in the world, the laws of nature. The natural resources of our vast continent are not inexhaustible. But if we will use our riches wisely, if we will protect our wildlife and preserve our lakes and streams, these things will last us for generations to come."
"I have learned from the animal world, and what everyone will learn who studies it is, a renewed sense of kinship with the earth and all its inhabitants."
~ Walt Disney
How will you celebrate Earth Day? I'll be planting seeds in my garden.
