Disneys Oceans Deliver BIG!!!!!!!
Thanks to the support of thousands of moviegoers who took to the theaters during “Oceans” opening week, more than 35,000 acres of coral reef will be protected in The Bahamas. Disneynature will work through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund and The Nature Conservancy’s Adopt a Coral Reef program to protect 55 square miles of reef—a size that is equivalent to more than 412 Disneylands.
“We’re excited to once again collaborate with The Nature Conservancy on an initiative that takes the impact of Disneynature’s storytelling to an entirely new level,” said Alan Bergman, president of The Walt Disney Studios. “The health of our oceans is absolutely vital to the well-being of our planet and thanks to the supporters of Disneynature’s motion picture ‘Oceans,’ this investment in marine conservation will help ensure critical aquatic environments will thrive for future generations.”
What great news! I saw Oceans with some of my best friends and little cousin on the opening night and we just loved it! The footage was incredible and I can't wait for it to come out on DVD! Next year Disney will be releasing a documentary which follows the lives of two different African cat families - I wonder which organization they will donate to next time!?!?
