Earlier this year, I was listening to an episode of WDW Today about predictions for 2013, and I made four predictions on their Facebook group.
One of them was the idea that there would be some sort of "wander the park and interact with things" type of project like Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom or Agent P's World Showcase Adventure in Epcot coming to Animal Kingdom.
Looks like that prediction is coming true with "Wilderness Explorers".
Inspired by the scouting organization that Russell was part of in the movie "Up", there will now be a scavenger-hunt type of event available at Animal Kingdom to earn Wilderness Explorer "patches". A brief summary of the program can be found at the Disney Parks Blog:
Although there's no official date for an opening, you can get an idea of what it is like from this video of Game Testing:
I'm really excited about this, as I think it will be not only a great learning opportunity, but also provide an all-ages activity to help you get more out of a visit to Animal Kingdom!
