One of my favoritethings to do atDisneys Animal Kingdomis to ride Kilimanjaro SafarisExpedition and watch guests react with awe and excitement when they see lions.

There is so much to admire about these majestic creatures so Im thrilled to share our newest edition of the Caring for Disney Animals video series is all about African lions presented by Lori, an animal care expert on our team who is eager to share what makes these animals unique.
At Disneys Animal Kingdom, were helping to care for and protect lions each and every day. Its a great time to learn more about the pride at our park as we gear up for Disneys groundbreaking new film, “The Lion King“on July 19 and The Lion King Protect the Pride campaign.
Did you know lions and other wildlife across Africa are facing a crisis? Since the release of the original animated version of “The Lion King” ?25 years ago, Africa has lost half of its lions, and only about 20,000 remains. Disney is taking action to Protect the Pride and support the Wildlife Conservation Networks (WCN) Lion Recovery Fund (LRF) in hopes of?doubling the number of lions in the wild by 2050.
You can help Protect the Pride too gather your friends and family and come visit the lions at Disneys Animal Kingdom. For every guest who rides the Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Florida during opening week of “The Lion King” film (July 19 – 25, 2019), Disney Conservation Fund will donate $2 (up to $350,000) to WCNs LRFs efforts to help double the number of lions across Africa by 2050. Theme park admission is required.
