More exciting news coming out of Pandora – The World of Avatar today! Disney has announced “Connect to Protect,” a new interactive way for guests to explore the new Pandora World and support conservation efforts here on Planet Earth at the same time.
“Connect to Protect” is a mobile adventure that invites guests to participate in missions with a scientist while exploring the incredible Valley of Mo’ara and helping protect the habits of at-risk animals here on Earth.
Upon entering the land, guests using the My Disney Experience app will be invited to instant message with one of the moon’s ecological specialists, Fitsimti “Fits” Buckley. Fits will guide you around Pandora, showing off some of the more exotic elements of the environment and sharing important messages about conservation along the way that can be applied both on Pandora and here on Earth.
After completing one or more missions, you will unlock a $10 contribution from Disney Parks, through the Disney Conservation Fund, or a $5 contribution just for discussing conservation. You will then get to choose how that contribution will help protect or restore habitats important to one of 10 threatened categories of animals: apes, elephants, butterflies, coral reefs, cranes, monkeys, rhinos, sea turtles, sharks & rays, and tigers.
Be sure to strike up a conversation with Fits this summer during your visit to Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, to protect some special habitats and species right here on Earth!
I love this idea! This is such a great way to have some more fun at Pandora – The World of Avatar and help the planet at the same time. I have a feeling that kids of all ages are going to love it too.
