Walt Disney World New Round-up For April 4th, 2019

April is Earth Month, and Disney is calling attention to its approach on the environmental efforts of Disney Parks. One such display includes a larger-than-life sculpture of penguins, between The Land and The Seas with Nemo & Friends, that is made entirely out of recycled marine debris. "The artwork was created by the nonprofit organization WashedAshore.org, whose mission is to produce powerful works of art that are designed to help inspire a global audience to keep oceans and waterways clear of plastic pollution."
