Earth Day

In celebration of the film’s release, Disneynature has joined forces with the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada for a “See CHIMPANZEE, Save Chimpanzees” program where for every moviegoer who sees the film on opening week, a donation will be made to JGI Canada to help protect chimpanzees and their habitats, now and into the future.

In the spirit of the film, and to further do our part to help protect these amazing animals, we are launching a “’Like’ Us, Save Chimps” program on our Walt Disney Studios Canada Facebook page today – and we need your help!

If we can reach 22,000 “likes” on our Facebook page ( ) by Sunday, April 22nd – Earth Day, we will adopt two orphaned chimpanzees through the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada’s Chimp Guardian Program. Our two certificates of adoption will later be shared with our fans on our Facebook wall.

“Like” Walt Disney Studios Canada’s Facebook page .

“Share” the post on our page about the “’Like’ Us, Save Chimps” campaign.
