Our work with Disney reflects the Company’s leadership in reducing its carbon emissions and slowing deforestation for the benefit of wildlife, communities and future generations.

Our organizations have collaborated on many initiatives over the years, beginning in the 1990s to help shape the conservation programs at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park and continuing today to support the Company’s comprehensive long-term environmental strategy. As part of Disney’s commitment to address emissions and combat climate change, the Company has invested over US$ 17 million in CI’s forest conservation REDD+ projects primarily in the Alto Mayo region of Peru. This effort is the largest commitment to CI by a single corporation to such projects to date. Additionally, to protect monkeys and other endangered species in their natural habitats and support local communities in Cambodia, Indonesia and Sri Lanka, Disneynature selected CI to receive a contribution through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund based on opening week ticket sales for their 2015 feature film “Monkey Kingdom.”

Our plan

The collaboration demonstrates that forest conservation is one of the best and easiest ways to protect the planet and its inhabitants. In 2013, CI  announced​ the verification of its forest carbon offset project located in Peru’s Alto Mayo Protected Forest (AMPF). With seed money provided by Disney in 2009, it has become an excellent example of a public-private collaboration around a REDD+ project. As part of Disney’s efforts to address its carbon footprint, CI “retired” over 400,000 metric tons of carbon credits in their name. The project includes a series of workshops for youth from the Alto Mayo’s buffer zone aimed at providing the skills and information that will empower them to educate their communities on the importance of protecting their natural home.

    In addition to its work to conserve nature, Disney is helping kids develop lifelong conservation values. The Company brings the magic of the natural world to families through engaging programs that inspire conservation action, experiences in places like Disney’s Animal Kingdom — which reflects the Company’s dedication to wildlife — and entertaining storytelling, like the 2015 Disneynature feature film “Monkey Kingdom.” For every ticket sold during opening week, Disneynature will make a contribution through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund to Conservation International. The funds will support CI programs in Indonesia, Cambodia and Sri Lanka that protect monkeys and other endangered species — and also restore forest areas that help provide fresh water to tens of millions of people.

    EditText: In 2012, Disney donated $US 50,000 to CI’s freshwater conservation programs as part of a campaign linked to Disney’s mobile game "Where's My Water?" Tied to the launch of the free version of the game, players helped Swampy the Alligator get enough water to take a bath and collected rubber ducks in the game to show their support for water conservation. The Every Duck Counts campaign also featured freshwater facts, water saving action items and information on CI’s freshwater projects.
