This year’s “Party for the Planet” celebration officially unveiled two exclusive research stations located within Rafiki’s Planet Watch and the Main Entrance of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. These new research stations, offered in partnership with Hewlett-Packard and Conservation International, will provide Guests the opportunity to get a hands-on look at the technology scientists use to learn more about animals and their natural habitats.
Many of the tools showcased at these research stations, including pieces of equipment called camera traps, were used throughout production of the newest Disneynature film, “Monkey Kingdom.”
While “Party for the Planet” is a one-day event, the Disneynature “Monkey Kingdom” research station at Rafiki’s Planet Watch will be open April 22 – May 20, 2015 and the research station at the Main Entrance of the park will be open April 22-28, 2015.
Guests are encouraged to see the newest Disneynature film “Monkey Kingdom” during opening week, as for every ticket sold between April 17-23, 2015, Disneynature will make a donation to Conservation International to help protect monkeys and other endangered species in their natural habitats.
