Team of international scientists departs today to discover the unknown in China's Himalayan region

environmental organizations and scientists to develop strategies to protect the unique species of the region. At Disney's Animal Kingdom in Florida, the findings will be incorporated into the Expedition Everest attraction, a high-speed adventure that combines a roller coaster-like thrill with the mysterious legends of the Himalayan region. Expedition Everest will open in 2006 in the Asia section of the park.

Discovery Networks will accompany CI and Disney to document the expedition's journey, tracking scientists searching for signs of new species, exploring the Himalayan landscapes and interviewing local officials, scientists and residents about their experiences and sightings of the region's unusual creatures. Renowned for compelling, real-world storytelling, Discovery will share these unique stories with millions of viewers.

"Expedition Everest: Mission Himalayas" builds upon a long-time relationship between CI and Disney to support biodiversity conservation. Since 1995, Disney Wildlife Conservation Fund (DWCF) and the Walt Disney Company Foundation have contributed to several CI initiatives including a Global Amphibian Assessment, the protection of Cambodia's Cardamom Mountains, and a conservation project in Botswana. Additionally, Russell A. Mittermeier, Ph.D., president of CI, is a member of Disney's Animal Kingdom Advisory Board.

The Disney Wildlife Conservation Fund supports non-profit conservation organizations focused on endangered animals and their habitats. The fund will specifically be involved in this expedition to work with local eastern Himalayan scientists and students to identify as many specimens as possible.
