African Cats,’ “Save the Savanna” is another of Disneynature’s conservation efforts. The first began with the program attached to, “Earth” (2009). Three million trees were planted in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest as a result. The movie “Oceans” (2010) helped establish 40,000 acres of marine protected areas in The Bahamas, which contain miles of vital coral reef. Disney hopes that the “Save the Savanna” program goes viral and they’ve put together several ways you can help.
If you see it during opening week (until 4/28/11), a portion of the proceeds from that week’s ticket sales will be donated to the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF)through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund to ensure the future of lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, giraffes and a host of other animals in the African savanna. With your help, the AWF will be working to protect the Amboseli Wildlife Corridor, a passage between the Amboseli, Tsavo West and Chyulu National Parks that is frequently used by a variety of wildlife.
