Pandora Wilderness Explorer Badges
By now, I'm sure you've heard about the banshees, bioluminescence and beauty of Pandora – The World of Avatarat Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park. However, did you know the Wilderness Explorer troop leaders have traveled there, too? Guests can earn two new Pandora-themed Wilderness Explorers badges when you learn more about the flora and fauna in the Valley of Mo’ara and compare observations of the natural world of Pandora to nature on Earth.
Wilderness Explorers is a self-guided experience at Disney’s Animal Kingdom with 30 missions, ranging from animal observations to learning nature skills. Explorers earn sticker badges to place inside the program’s handbook.
With each badge, guests learn more about the different animals found at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and even ones found in their own backyard. The two new badges encourage participants to explore the wonders of nature – on Pandora and on Earth. When earning the new Botany badge, explorers learn about amazing plant adaptations using the example of Pandora’s Flaska reclinata, a plant that responds to touch. To earn the Ecology badge, explorers learn about relationships between organisms on Earth and on Pandora.
If you are already a Wilderness Explorer, add the new Pandora-themed badges to their handbook or request a new handbook. Guests can pick up handbooks at various Troop Leader locations around the park, and badges can be earned daily from 10 a.m. until dusk, or 45 minutes prior to sunset when Gorilla Falls and Maharajah Jungle Trek close.
Wilderness Explorers troop leaders are eager to share their scientific observations with Guests and show them how they can take what you learned in Pandora back home to help celebrate the magic of nature on Earth.
