Pandora Utility Suit: Nothing says "Animal Kingdom" more than a giant mechanical suit. At least that's what Disney says as it is debuting as new entertainment on the park's 20th anniversary, Aprill 22nd. The suit is similar to ones seen in the film. In the movie, it was essentially a combat suit, but ACE has re-purposed the design for research purposes. It will be called the Pandora Conservation Initiative Utility Suit.

Meet Me at the Park: While not Animal Kingdom news per se, it is Disney conservation news. Disney is donating $1.5 million to the National Recreation and Park Association to support their Meet Me in the Park program. The program attempts to encourage kids to spend more time in their local parks and you can vote on some the parks obtaining grants here. So go vote for your local park.
