Yogi Bear, a new live-action 3D animated verison of the classic cartoon, opens on Friday, Dec. 17, and brings with it an important message: conservation is a a key part of protecting our resources.

In the film, which stars Tom Cavanagh, Anna Faris, Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake, a greedy politician tries to sell Jellystone Park, and it’s up to the ranger and a documentary filmmaker (along with Yogi and Boo Boo, of course) to save the forest.

The message “is about how important our natural resources are,” director Eric Brevig tells the Mother Nature Network. “We couldn’t get around and move tractors without causing damage. These trees were grown for lumber and any we did cut down we used for log cabins and sets.”

Actress Anna Faris also believes the film holds an important environmental message.

“I think it gives families an opportunity to really appreciate their natural surroundings,” says Faris. “It’s about getting outside and appreciating nature, and I think the first step in protecting our environment is appreciating it.”

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
