New 2012 Itineraries Departing From Galveston

Local Children + Stingrays = Fun Eco Camp at Disney’s Castaway Cay

One of the best ways to learn to care about the environment in your community is to take a “deep dive” into understanding local species and their natural habitats. That’s exactly what children from the Abaco Islands did recently when they visited Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, to learn about stingrays and conservation.

Children from the Abaco Islands exploring ways to learn to care about the environment at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay

 

The children were participants in summer eco camps hosted by Friends of the Environment, a local non-profit focused on environmental education. With the support of Disney Cruise Line, Disney’s Animal Programs, and Science and Environment, local children participated in the week-long camp, where they learned about the ecosystems in their own community. The students then made their way to Castaway Cay where the education continued. While on the island, children were able to join stingrays in the water to learn about these fascinating creatures. They were also able to explore the island’s nature trails from the observation tower and engage in an overview with the onsite Disney’s Animal Programs animal care expert to learn about the research being done on Castaway Cay to protect marine habitats in The Bahamas.

Hosting these children on Castaway Cay is only one example of the community outreach work Disney Cruise Line does in The Bahamas and other ports of call. We’ll continue to share similar stories in the coming months so be sure to check back.

What activities have you done this summer to better understand local species and natural habitats in your area?
