Disney Celebrates Earth Month with “Bears”

April is Earth Month, and Disney has a long history of protecting the environment and finding ways to connect families with nature. From Animal Kingdom to conserving resources to reducing environmental impact from everyday business practices, Disney prides itself on its conservation values.

In celebration of Earth Month, Disneynature’s Bears will be making its way to theaters on April 18. The film will help viewers of all ages understand the importance of nature and how we fit into the picture. It’s also another way for Disney to share the beauty of nature and wildlife and inspire people to take care of it.

The company is also celebrating a milestone with the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, which recently reached its 1,000th grant. For nearly 20 years the DWCF has worked to fund nonprofit organizations that help kids learn about and celebrate nature, support studies to research wildlife and ecosystems, and aid in creating conservation and education programs in 112 countries.

Disney has also partnered with The Nature Conservatory to create a website where kids can explore and are encouraged to spend time outdoors – NatureRocks.org.

Also on Earth Day (April 22), Disney’s Animal Kingdom will have it’s annual Party for the Planet celebration. There will be extra activities and animal encounters throughout the park.

Will you be celebrating Earth Day? What kinds of activities do you and your family do to conserve and protect the environment?

About Katie Brockman

Ever since I first saw 101 Dalmatians when I was a toddler, I've had a love for the Mouse. I grew up waiting for the day I could finally visit the happiest place on Earth (still hasn't happened yet, but it will!) and watching endless marathons of The Lion King, Toy Story, and Lady and the Tramp. Nowadays I keep myself busy going to school full time earning my business degree. In my off time, I enjoy reading, writing, browsing Pinterest, and keeping the world on top of the latest advertising trends with my blog The Advertising Outlet.
