This week Disney is celebrating the animal care experts of Disney World. Animal keepers, aquarists and water scientists, ranch hands, veterinary team members and scientists, nutritionists, behaviorists, and leaders are all part of Disney’s animal care team. These cast members care for the thousands of animals that call Walt Disney World home.

Disney’s passion for animals and conservation dates back to Walt Disney himself, who created the True-Life Adventures film series to take audiences into the lives of animals that they may never see personally.

Caring for animals is a 24/7, 365 days a year, responsibility, and Disney’s teams work diligently to keep the well-being of each animal their number one priority. Ever wonder what it takes to prepare a diet for an elephant? Or train a tiger to participate in its own healthcare? Soon you’ll get a peek behind-the-scenes as the stories of these animal care experts and the animals they care for come to life in “The Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom,” streaming this fall on Disney+.
