Photos found on Disney’s Discovery Island. Originally opening in 1974 as Treasure Island, its name changed in 1978. Disney’s conservation efforts were recognized in 1981, when it was made an accredited zoological park by the American Association of Zoological Parks and Aquariums. The park was also widely known for housing the last Dusky Seaside Sparrow before it died in 1987, and then officially declared extinct in 1990.
