Disneynature was launched on Earth Day in 2008. It’s mission was to bring the top nature filmmakers together to develop amazing wildlife stories for the big screen. The first four films Earth, Oceans, African Cats, and Chimpanzee were four of the top grossing nature films to date.
Disney has always been a huge supporter of conservation, in the creation of Walt Disney World, around 8,700 acres (nearly one-third of Walt Disney World’s property) has been set
aside as a dedicated wildlife conservation area.
The next time you are at the Animal Kingdom, be sure to donate and become a Conservation Hero. Through donations tied to opening week attendance of these Disneynature films Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund has:
- Planted over three million trees in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest
- Established 40,000 acres of marine protected area in the Bahamas
- Educated 60,000 children about chimpanzee conservation and cared for chimpanzees
- Protected 65,000 acres of savanna in Kenya
- Protected 130,000 acres of wild chimpanzee habitat
