Disneynature – Save the Savanna” campaign will help protect more than 50,000 acres of land in Kenya’s Amboseli Wildlife Corridor on behalf of the moviegoers who came out to see Disneynature’s motion picture “African Cats” during its opening week (April 22-28, 2011). For each moviegoer who attended, a portion of the ticket sale went to the African Wildlife Foundation for the protection of a wide variety of animals on the Savanna.
Disneynature’s conservation efforts, began with its first release, “Earth” (2009), for which three million trees were planted in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest. The second release from Disneynature is “Oceans” (2010) which helped establish 40,000 acres of marine protected areas in The Bahamas. This recent release “African Cats” is in theaters now and continues their efforts for our planet.
Due to bad weather we missed the opening week, but we will be fixing that this weekend. I really was impressed with ‘Earth’ and ‘Oceans’ so I am sure it will be the same with ‘African Cats’.
So many companies are out to make a buck and it is so refreshing to see a company work so hard to contribute back. Just one of the reasons I am a Disney Nut!
So get out and see this great Disneynature film “African Cats”.
