Disneynature Monkey Kingdom

There had been a few questions regarding the first-week donations for Monkey Kingdom.

As with previous Disneynature films, for each ticket sold during opening week of the film, April 17-23, Disneynature will make a donation to Conservation International, an organization that combines science, partnership and field demonstration to empower societies to responsibly and sustainably care for nature and global biodiversity for the well-being of people.

The conservation program will support programs across Indonesia, Cambodia and Sri Lanka, protecting animals, restoring forest habitats, conserving fresh drinking water for local populations, and working within local communities to inspire people to join the effort.

FYI - the donations resulting from Canadians who purchased tickets during opening week of previous Disneynature titles have yielded the following results:
  • "Earth" - over 350,000 trees planted in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest
  • "Oceans" - 4,500 acres of marine protected area established in The Bahamas
  • "African Cats" - 6,000 acres of savanna protected in Kenya
  • "Chimpanzee" - nearly 8,000 acres of wild chimpanzee habitat protected
