Animal lovers everywhere love being able to visit Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. Not only can you see incredible animals from all over, but Disney has a Conservation Fund that helps not only the animals that you see there but also those in the wild.
Vice President at Disney’s Animals, Science & Environment, Dr. Mark Penning shared this on Instagram:
Here’s some news that’s sure to put a bounce in your step … grey kangaroos are back at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park!
Meet Buckeye and mom, Millie. This “hoppy” duo came to us from another accredited institution as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ Species Survival Plan. By working with the SSP, we’re able to learn more about grey kangaroos and help keep the population in managed care healthy and genetically diverse.
We’re so excited to watch this family grow! “Hop” on over to Discovery Island to meet Buckeye, Millie and the rest of the grey kangaroo group, also known as a “mob.”
We are so excited that this duo is at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. If you’ve been looking for a reason to visit Walt Disney World, seeing these adorable ones is a plus.
