Disney has long been committed to protecting the natural beauty of The Bahamas and has worked to have as little impact on the environment as possible throughout the design, construction, and operation of Disney Lookout Cay. Disney Cruise Line developed less than 16% of the site, leaving the overwhelming majority of land in its natural state. The company focused on sustainable design and building, including elevated walkways and an innovative, open-trestle pier to prevent dredging. Disney has also committed to sending zero waste to landfill, and 90% of the destination’s energy demand will be from renewable sources.

Disney’s team of Bahamian on-site conservation experts continues to implement a variety of ongoing conservation initiatives like coral restoration projects, bird tagging programs, native plant preservation and more.
