In 1995, Disney created the Disney Conservation Fund in order to protect nature for future generations. The organization uses grants to invest in conservation efforts around the world. The “Marine Conservation Hero” line on this button indicates that at one point, its former owner donated at least one dollar to the Disney Conservation Fund at the Disney parks—in this case at the Living Seas at Epcot. Park-goers obtained buttons from this series by donating to the fund while at the parks, and Disney matched all donations. As of 2023, this fund is ongoing. Guests at the Disney parks can still obtain Conservation Hero buttons by donating to the fund, albeit with a different design than the one shown here.
