Disney's Animal Kingdom Celebrates International Vulture Awareness Day
This weekend Disney’s Animal Kingdom will have another of their terrific little animal celebrations. This one focuses on a bird one might not think to celebrate much, vultures. Here is what was posted on the Disney Parks Blog regarding this week’s activities...
Guests can find out all about vultures during special activities in celebration of International Vulture Awareness Day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom on September 5 and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge on September 7. At Disney’s Animal Kingdom, activities will take place near the Tree of Life and at Rafiki’s Planet Watch. At Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, activities will take place in the Jambo House lobby. Year-round, guests can see lappet-faced vultures at the Tree of Life, black vultures at Rafiki’s Planet Watch and Ruppell’s griffon vultures at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.
So If you happen to be at DAK this week, go learn about how important vultures are to their ecosystems.
