We have prepped with the Family Activity packet, we have monkeyed a bit around and now the wait is over! Today April 17th Disneynature’s Film Monkey Kingdom is In Theaters Everywhere! The movie tells how Life is an adventure for Maya, the clever and resourceful blonde-bobbed monkey in “Monkey Kingdom,” Disneynature’s new feature film set among ancient ruins in the storied jungles of South Asia. By the way, jealous of Maya and her family, South Asia is in my travel bucket list. #MonkeyKingdom Time Celebrate Earth Day with Disneynature’s Film Monkey Kingdom
Monkey Kingdom is set to deliver us an amazing story that will entertain us and give us the chance to teach the kids a bit more about conservation. That is because when you go watch MONKEY KINGDOM during opening week (April 17-23), Disneynature will make a donation in your honor to Conservation International to help protect monkeys and other endangered species in their natural habitats. Learn more at http://nature.disney.com/
A little about what Conservation International will do with the donations: Support programs across Indonesia, Cambodia, and Sri Lanka by helping
1) Protect monkeys and other endangered species
2) Save and restore forest habitats
3) Partner with and support local communities
Further activities in Sri Lanka, Cambodia and Indonesia will include researching, rescuing and rehabilitating monkeys, patrolling protected areas which serve as important habitats for monkeys and other species, planting trees and supporting community education and forest-friendly jobs.
By the way, this can be turned into a geography lesson too!
