Cotton-Top Tamarins in a Christmas Tree

The Wildlife Tracking Center, located in Conservation Station at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, is celebrating the 12 Days of Christmas and, of course, conservation in a unique way this holiday season. Think three okapis shopping, four rhinos baking, five poop snowmen and a bunch of cotton-top tamarins in a Christmas tree. Now through January 2, Guests can see the amazing display of all 12 days when they visit the Wildlife Tracking Center, where, mixed with all the fun, is an opportunity to watch real scientists at work.


Led by Senior Conservation Biologist, Anne Savage, Ph.D., areas of research at the Wildlife Tracking Center include elephant communication, reproductive biology, and techniques, such as hi-tech transmitters, that allow scientists to follow animals like endangered sea turtles and cotton-top tamarins in the wild.


  • I love visiting the Conservation Station at Disney’s Animal Kingdom! ºOº We were there this past October and enjoyed all of the Halloween decor @ the Wildlife Tracking Center, as well as watching some of the scientists working. Keep up the great conservation work Disney!!!! And, I think “Five Poooooooop Snowmen” is hilarious!
