National Park Foundation Gets Boost From Bears!
The DisneyNature film Bears has done a huge part in raising money for the National Park Foundation! The support will go toward preserving the habitat of grizzly bears like those in the film, plus a lot more park initiatives!
The conservation initiative tied to the movie began with a portion of the ticket sales from its opening week going to the National Park Foundation.
That money will go to benefit the 2.9 million acres of U.S. national parks, and restore or conduct research for 400,00 more acres! It will also help to protect and preserve more than 75 species of plants and animals that are currently threatened.
Furthermore, it will allow more than 60 interns in high school and college to do field research in national parks to benefit them even more, plus educate visitors to the national parks!
But conservation efforts tied to the movie Bears extended way past ticket sales!
Olivia Holt recorded the theme song "Carry On" for the movie Bears, and a portion of every iTunes download of the song also goes to national parks.
Olivia also joined Club Penguin to get kids to unlock an exclusive bear costume in the game, which then unlocked a $1 to the parks.
Part of the proceeds from plush bears sold at Disney Stores, and Duffy the Disney Bear sold at Disney Parks also went to bolstering the parks and supporting wildlife across the country!
