Trekking Down to Animal Kingdom's Conservation Station

As I've mentioned in the last few posts, I spent a chunk of June in Florida. With our kids being at the perfect age (and being former Floridians), this summer was just the right time to do the Theme Park circuit. Not only did we do LEGOLAND, but we also hit up Disney and SeaWorld.

Along our many travels, my inner eco-editor was always on the lookout!  It wasn't hard at all at Disney's Animal Kingdom.  We jumped a train which took us to an area of the park called "Conservation Station."  With Rafiki (from "The Lion King") as our guide, we walked a trail between the rail station and the conservation center.  Along the way, snapping pictures as we went, we learned from several informational signs the answer to "This conservation...what is it?" We also discovered what we can do in our backyards and beyond to put conservation into action!!  Be sure to learn about many things you can do at home by checking out the mini-photo/movie tour of mine above or over at Vimeo.
