Grant Recipients: Earth Day, which of course recently passed, also saw the announcement of grants given by the Disney Conservation Fund to various projects around the world. Some of projects announced include protecting the Tasmanian devil in its historical range, a nest guarding program for the highly endangered California Condor, and helping to protect sea grass in the Florida Keys, a vital part of that ecosystem. For more details check out this blog post.

Wilderness Explorer's in Dinoland: One of my favorite recent additions to the park has been the Wilderness Explorer's game. As I am sure you know, there are stations located throughout the park where you earn badges to put in your book. Well, the one over at Dinoland, which was near the ice cream stand is moving with the upcoming addition of the Donald Duck party. The station will now be located near the queue of Dinosaur instead.
