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.
