Wilderness Explorers and Scouts study many creatures in the wild. Flamingos live in large groups called colonies and it can be difficult to tell them apart. Ask the WE Troop Leader to show you some photos of the flamingos living at the Animal Kingdom, identify them for your badge.

Cub Scout: Plants & Wildlife

Cub Scout: Plants & Wildlife

During your Walt Disney World vacation, your scout will have the opportunity to dig more into plants & wildlife as you plan for your vacation, while traveling to WDW, dining at the restaurants, and visiting the parks.

Throughout the Cub Scout ranks, there are many plant & wildlife goals built into the adventures including:

  • Being knowledgeable, responsible, and comfortable in the outdoors
  • Going fishing and having a hands-on experience to apply all the Bears have learned
  • Knowing it’s never too early to understand our animal and insect neighbors
  • Learning about the creatures and plants that share our living world
  • Learning about the types of fish near the Scouts’ homes
  • Learning how to observe and listen carefully
  • Learning how to protect the environment
  • Learning important life skills
  • Learning what the fish eat, how they can be caught, and how we can conserve and preserve our fish by using the concept of catch-and-release fishing
  • Practicing service to the community and the world
  • Practicing ways to conserve in the world around us
  • Taking care of plants and the environment
  • Understanding different types of equipment and making simple fishing tackle
  • Understanding our interconnection with the plant world
  • Working in teams
A Scout is thrifty, kind, clean and reverent while practicing plants & wildlife skills.

          Identifying Animals at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge

          AKLWildlifeFieldGuide

          Wildlife Field Guides are available at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. As you enter the expansive lobby of the Jambo House, there is a gigantic picture window with a view to 30 acres on the Savannah, enjoy the African animals from the elevated viewing area, Arusha Rock.   

          All three Savannahs were specially built for the lodge animals, which are cared for separately from the Animal Kingdom Park animals. Alcoves in the hallways and additional viewing spots are available througout the resort. To find the largest variety of animals, search at both Jambo House and Kidani Village.

          Want a little more Disney magic? Chat with an Animal Kingdom Lodge Cast Member, ask them questions about their country and their traditions. Many are on a cultural exchange program and it is like having your own personal guide into African life and the land. Cast Members are usually available on the overlooks and trails, especially at sunset on the overlook near the pool where a number of night vision goggles are shared for viewing the animals.

          Webelos & AOL Elective Adventure: Into the Wild

          Do six from requirements 1 through 9.
          1. Collect and care for an “insect, amphibian, or reptile zoo.” You might
          have crickets, ants, grasshoppers, a lizard, or a toad. Study them for
          a while and then let them go. Share your experience with your
          Webelos den.
          2. Set up an aquarium or terrarium. Keep it for at least a month. Share
          your experience with your Webelos den by showing them photos or
          drawings of your project or by having them visit to see your project.
          3. Watch for birds in your yard, neighborhood, or town for one week.
          Identify the birds you see, and write down where and when you saw
          them.
          4. Learn about the bird flyways closest to your home. Find out which
          birds use these flyways.
          5. Watch at least four wild creatures (reptiles, amphibians, arachnids,
          fish, insects, or mammals) in the wild. Describe the kind of place
          (forest, field, marsh, yard, or park) where you saw them. Tell what
          they were doing.
          6. Identify an insect, reptile, bird, or wild animal that is found only in
          your area of the country. Tell why it survives in your area.
          7. Give examples of at least two of the following:
          a. A producer, a consumer, and a decomposer in the food
          chain of an ecosystem
          b. One way humans have changed the balance of nature
          c. How you can help protect the balance of nature
          8. Learn about aquatic ecosystems and wetlands in your area. Talk with
          your Webelos den leader or family about the important role aquatic
          ecosystems and wetlands play in supporting life cycles of wildlife and
          humans, and list three ways you can help.
          9. Do ONE of the following:
          a. Visit a museum of natural history, a nature center, or a zoo
          with your family, Webelos den, or pack. Tell what you saw.
          b. Create a video of a wild creature doing something
          interesting, and share it with your family and den.
