Turtle Conservation and Outing

Our beaches are among the most important turtle-nesting habitats in the western hemisphere. They are frequented by 3 species of threatened or endangered sea turtles: loggerheads, greens and leatherbacks. Venture out onto the beach in the morning to see Disney Conservation Team Wildlife in action, and you just might get to see a freshly laid sea turtle nest or hatchling turtles that have emerged from their nest.

Disney has contributed over $4.3 million to sea turtle conservation efforts around the world through the Disney Conservation Fund. If you would like to give to the fund, your contribution will be welcome in the gift shop.
