Wildlife Conservation is an important part of the story at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Baby animals are welcomed often and they all become part of the family out on the Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition, Pangani Forest Exploration Trail, etc. See what baby animals we’ve celebrated here on the Disney Parks Blog.
