Captive-Breeding Program on Display
Visitors to the Animal Kingdom theme park can now see Disney's conservation efforts of Florida Key woodrats on a tour in the Rafiki's Planet Watch section of the park. Disney scientists are running a captive-breeding program for the Key Largo woodrat at its in-park facilities. Its population is confined to a single island in the Upper Keys, where development has destroyed much of its habitat.Stray cats and pythons slithering into the Keys from the Everglades have been known to hunt the rats.
