  • Walt Disney always had a passion for wild animals and teaching others the importance of conserving nature through such films: The Living Desert, The Vanishing Prairie, The African Lion, and The White Wilderness.In 2007, Disney started a new nature documentary series called Disney Nature.
  • Nature films such as Oceans, African Cats and Earth are all representations of Disney’s belief in the necessity of conservation.
  • The relationship between nature and humans is shown through Disney films where animals and nature are given human characteristics.Take Snow White into consideration, after Snow White is banished from the castle, and she lives in the forest and her animal friends help her build a house as if this is an everyday occurrence.Walt Disney believed in humans and animals working together to conserve nature.
  • Nature conservation has always been a part of Disney’s history and it’s separate from environment because its an important part of the company’s current work.
  • Accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums meaning they have met or exceeded standards in education, conservation and research.Animal Care teams works with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, other zoological facilities and conservation groups.
  • In early 2010, Disney animal care teams had already been working with sea turtles effected by pneumonia from record cold temperatures.Later that year in April, the BP Oil Spill was on it’s way to destroying habitats in the Gulf.The Disney Animal Care team helped rescue 8 sea turtles.
  • Initially took in 8 sea turtles: 6 Kemp Ridley seat turtles (which are the smallest of the species) and 2 Green Sea Turtles. All sea turtles that live in the Gulf of Mexico are endangered or threatened species.Donated through the Disney Worldwide conservation Fund: for environmental and animal rescue and grassroots organizations assisting with the cleanup.
  • The team gave initial exams to the sea turtles including x-rays, blood tests and a complete physical assessment.By August of 2010 Disney Animal Care teams had taken in 32 sea turtles effected by the oil spillThe Seas with Nemo & Friends at Epcot is a designated rehabilitation site for rescued manatees and sea turtles until they are well enough to be returned to their habitats. 
  • Walt Disney’s vision is maintained through the efforts of Disney’s Animal Programs and such theme parks as Animal Kingdom and Epcot. Revenues from ticket prices from the theme park help Disney’s bottom line while maintaining what the company was founded on.
