Disney Cruise Line continues to educate its guests and crew about environmental sustainability efforts through its annual Walk for Wildlife event on board its ships and its private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay.
More than 350 guests and crew members participated in this year’s two-mile walk on Earth Day, raising money and awareness for marine conservation projects funded by the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund (DWCF). In 2008, the Walk for Wildlife started as an event just for crew members. As it increased in popularity, the Walk for Wildlife was finally transformed into an event for crew and passengers. Since the event started, it has raised over $35,000 in donations for the DWCF. This year, Disney Cruise Line also donated an additional $5,000 to DWCF on behalf of its guests and crew. Disney Cruise Line takes its commitment to environmental stewardship and global conservation seriously, and the company hopes to continue this event for years to come.
