Disneynature’s ‘Monkey Kingdom’ Supports Conservation Efforts

Now that Disneynature’s “Monkey Kingdom” is out in theaters, did you know that the film supports Conservation International? This group has joined forces with Disneynautre to create beautiful content. When working together change in the world is possible.

During opening week, the film provided a portion of ticket sales to the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund which went to conservation projects in Sri Lanka, Cambodia and Indonesia.

In an issued press release, information on where the money went to includes the likes of:

  • Programs working across 1 million acres of some of the world’s most biologically diverse ecosystems
  • Protection of important habitats for thousands of species, including 29 different types of primates and other wildlife such as Asian elephants, Javan leopards, sun bears and the giant ibis
  •  Planting thousands of trees to create a “green wall” that protects two major national parks and a watershed that provides fresh water to more than 30 million people
  • Educating visitors, community members and school children about the importance of local conservation of nearby endangered habitat
  • Ranger training and patrols to monitor and protect 185 acres of endangered forests
  • Operation of a gibbon rescue-and-rehabilitation center

Peter Seligmann, Chairman and CEO of Conservation International said, “Disneynature’s films help the audience care about and understand nature. That alone is an incredibly important contribution to conservation. But Disneynature does more than tell a powerful, emotional story. It is committed to supporting programs in the field that directly benefit at-risk ecosystems, as well as the animals and people that depend upon them. This kind of support helps organizations like Conservation International create lasting impact on the ground.”
