The Conservation Station is an indoor exhibit for all ages. It takes place in a series of air-conditioned rooms, sometimes through viewing windows, and other times hands on. The Conservation Station is always open, meaning there are no lines!
Here you will observe Disney’s Animals behind the scenes, as they are taken care of. You will be able to view their Veterinary care, their feeding, and routine checkups. Through large windows you will be able to see daily animal procedures. Video cameras allow you to watch animals inside their cages as they play, feed, and interact with the trainers.
Among other things you can view a beautiful variety of murals of animal species (Be sure to look for hidden Mickey's!). Inside the air conditioned buildings are shows and games relating to the animal species found inside Animal Kingdom. Put on some headsets and listen to the sounds of the rain-forest.
If your looking to educate your kids on the exotic wildlife that are inside of Animal Kingdom, this is an experience you shouldn’t miss. “Eco-Web” is an experience inside that teaches kids about animal conservationists around the world. Visual observation of the life and daily work it takes to maintain the animals at animal kingdom is an enlightening experience. Conservation Station attempts to bring notice to the need for wildlife conservation.
Review by Amanda Prad
“I took my class of students to Animal Kingdom to learn about some of the animals we had studied. We jumped onto the train that takes you out to the Conservation Station. On the train we were able to view the back of many of the exhibits, and learn about the various housing facilities for the animals. When we got to the Observation Station the kids scattered, the place was chock full of interesting stuff. It was enjoyable to watch the animals on the televisions and see their interactions with the trainers. But one of the most entertaining things to do there is watch the veterinarians work with the animals, at times it can be so funny.”
