New Wilderness Explorer Badges Coming to Pandora – The World of AVATAR

New Wilderness Explorer Badges Coming to Pandora - The World of AVATAR WE-Badges-Final357843

With all the excitement surrounding the upcoming opening of Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we thought you should know that Wilderness Explorer troop leaders have traveled there already. Once the new land opens this Saturday, guests will be able to earn two new Pandora-themed Wilderness Explorers badges when they learn about the flora and fauna that lives in the Valley of Mo’ara and compare observations of the natural world of Pandora to nature on Earth.

Wilderness Explorers is a self-guided activity at Disney’s Animal Kingdom that includes 30 missions. The missions range from animal observations to discovering nature skills. With the completion of each activity, explorers can earn sticker badges to affix to the appropriate places inside the program’s manual. Take a look at our own Kathy Werling’s photo-filled review by clicking here. Guests can learn more about the different animals seen at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and even about animals that are found in their own backyards.

Two new badges will inspire explorers to examine the wonders of nature; both on Pandora and on Earth. “While earning the new Botany badge, explorers learn about amazing plant adaptations using the example of Pandora’s Flaska reclinata, a plant that responds to touch. To earn the Ecology badge, explorers learn about relationships between organisms on Earth and on Pandora.”

If you have already started the Wilderness Explorer program, you can simply add the new Pandora-themed badges to your handbook or you can always ask for a new handbook. Handbooks can be picked up at various troop leader locations throughout the park. Badges can be earned every day between the hours of 10:00 a.m. until dusk or 45-minutes prior to sunset when Gorilla Falls and Maharajah Jungle Trek close.

Wilderness Explorers troop leaders are enthusiastic about sharing their scientific observations. They’ll also show you how you can take what you learned in Pandora back home!
