The staff at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World is celebrating the recent birth of a baby white rhino, according to the Disney Parks Blog.

  • Lola, a white rhino that calls Disney’s Animal Kingdom home, gave birth to a female calf in early November.
  • The Disney Parks Blog reports that both mother and baby are healthy and living backstage at the park.
  • The birth of this baby marked the third white rhino born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in the past 13 months and the 13th white rhino born at Walt Disney World Resort.

  • This is significant because rhinos in the wild are hunted for their horns, and their populations continue to dwindle.
  • The Disney Conservation Fund also continues to protect white and black rhinos in the wild by supporting projects focused on habitat monitoring and restoration.
  • Lola and her new baby will continue to spend then ext several months backstage before joining the rest of the herd on the park’s Harambe Wildlife Reserve.
