This Thursday, April 22, is Earth Day. When I look at Earth from above, its somewhat ironic that I don’t see much ‘Earth’ at all – I see Ocean. This truly is our Blue Planet.
This year, Disney Nature is helping us all with this realization, by releasing a new film ‘Oceans’ in theaters around the world. The trailers speak for themselves. In my opinion, this is some of the best undersea footage ever captured on film.
Taking the magic a step further, Disney Nature, has partnered with the Nature Conservancy to aid in developing marine protected areas in the Bahamas. A portion of each ticket sold during the first week of the film’s release will be contributed to this critical environmental work.
This will have a HUGE impact.
The island nation of the Bahamas is a country in desperate need of large scale support to preserve and protect marine resources, and is a special place for Ocean Opportunity, as it is where the project was born back in 2002.
The ‘Ocean’ film campaign will go a long, long way.
So, get out there on Thursday, think ‘green’, and celebrate ‘blue’!
