Disney as always remains focused it’s impact on the environment. I am glad to see the portion of the procedes of the sale of this Bluray/DVD going to the Nature Conservancy.
Here is the article:
With the focus on the world’s oceans more than ever following the disastrous BP oil spill, World Oceans Day has more of an impact this year than ever. Disney is showing their efforts with the release of “Oceans” on Blu-ray and DVD, by contributing a portion of sales to The Nature Conservancy.
“Oceans” is set to release on October 19th, 2010 in a Disney Blu-ray Combo Pack, which also includes a DVD, and a 1-Disc DVD standard set.
Disneynature, the studio which brought audiences “Earth” last year, has committed to carry on the “See Oceans, Save Oceans” initiative which started with the film’s theatrical release. A portion of sales will be donated to the Nature Conservancy which works to protect marine habitats and establish new ones in Oceans near the Bahamas. Moviegoers who went to see the film in theaters already helped conserve more than 35,000 acres of coral reef.
Directed by Jacques Perrin, who won the Academy Award for Best Documentary for Winged Migration, and narrated by actor Pierce Brosnan, who himself is a major contributor to the International Fund for Animal Welfare’s “Save the Whales Again!” campaign, “Oceans” takes viewers swimming alongside whales, dolphins, and more as high-definition cameras travel deep into the ocean to uncover the mysteries of the big blue world. The movie grossed $75 million worldwide upon its release last April.
Donations to the Nature Conservancy, one of the world’s largest conservation organizations, will be made with purchase of the Blu-ray Combo Pack or DVD of “Oceans” during the week of October 19th and 25th.
