Recipients Announced for the 2014 Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund Grants

The Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund (DWCF) has announced the recipients for its 2014 grants.

One hundred and forty one organizations were chosen to receive grants from the DWCF. Including the grants for 2014 the DWCF has contributed more than $25 million in grants to organizations to study wildlife, create community conservation projects, and protect habitats around the world.

A few of the organizations receiving grants this year include African People & Wildlife Fund Massai Steppe Big Cats Conservation, the International Fund for Animal Welfare's Sharing Space with China's Elephants, the Zoo Conservation Outreach Group and Instituto de Pesquisas Ecologicas' Giant Armadillow Conservation Project, and The Marine Mammal Center's Hawaiian Monk Seal Healthcare Project.

Since it started, the DWCF has funded efforts to conserve more than 400 species of animals around the world and has engaged with more than 3 million people in conservation and education programs. The initiative has worked to protect 3,600 square miles of habitat.

Guests at the Walt Disney World Resort have a chance to support the DWCF in several ways including taking the Wild Africa Trek at Disney's Animal Kingdom, snorkeling at The Seas with Nemo & Friends, or purchasing a sponsored pin or plush toy.

I think that this is one of my favorite traditions of Disney Corporate citizenship, there have been so many incredible organizations to get these grants.
