As people in most of the U.S. get ready to set their clocks one hour ahead for Daylight Saving time, Guests visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom will “spring forward” to save frogs and other amphibians. On March 10, just a few days before Daylight Saving time begins, Guests and their families visiting the theme park will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of frog-related activities and find out how they can help amphibians, which are facing an extinction crisis.
Conservation Station at Rafiki’s Planet Watch will be hopping with fun and educational activities from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Young Guests and their families can play games that teach them about a frog’s life cycle and adaptations, listen to frog calls, and enter jumping contests to see if they can leap as far as a frog can.
Here are some steps all of us can take to help amphibians:
- Do your part to keep trash, chemicals and non-native plants and animals out of the natural environment
- Don’t let your pets pester frogs and other wildlife
- Conserve water
- Protect the environment by reducing energy use
