The animal care team at Walt Disney World always finds a way to make birthdays special for their baby animals. Celebration is in the air at Disney’s Animal Kingdom as they honor birthday girls Kirana and Grace this week.

Kirana, the first babirusa born at the park, just had her first birthday. Next is Grace, a western lowland gorilla, who is celebrating her second year with her troop.

Wildlife conservation is important to protect the Earth’s animal population and biodiversity. The team at Disney’s Animal Kingdom make terrific efforts in taking care of their resident wildlife.

In partnership with Disney’s Animal Nutrition Center, animal keepers made birthday “cakes” with portions of their daily diets and some extra goodies, like watermelon, to celebrate the occasion.
