Conservation Station

Conservation Station

An Attraction in Animal Kingdom

Last updated: March 2, 2024

At a Glance

Conservation Station is Animal Kingdom’s veterinary and conservation headquarters. Here guests can meet wildlife experts, observe ongoing projects, and learn about the behind-the-scenes operations of the park. The Station also serves as a rehabilitation center for injured animals and a nursery for recently born (or hatched) critters.

While there are several permanent exhibits, including Affection Section (an animal-petting area), what you see at Conservation Station will largely depend on what’s going on when you arrive. On most days when we’ve visited, there isn’t enough happening to justify waiting in line twice (coming and going) for the train.

Most of our readers agree that Conservation Station isn’t worth the hassle. A Tinley Park, Illinois, mom writes:

Skip Conservation Station. Between the train ride to get to it and being there, we wasted a precious 1½ hours!

A Denver family had a better experience:

We really enjoyed Conservation Station. We saw a 13-foot python eating a rat!

And a reader from Kent, England, was amused by both the goings-on and the other guests:

The most memorable part of Animal Kingdom for me was watching a veterinary surgeon and his team at Conservation Station perform an operation on a rat snake that had inadvertently swallowed a golf ball, presumably believing it to be an egg! This operation caused at least one onlooker to pass out.
