We told you that the Disneynature film “African Cats” helped raise enough money to preserve 9,500 acres of Kenya’s Amboseli Wildlife Corridor, but now the official numbers are in, and turns out the film has helped save over 5x that amount!

Thanks to ticket buyers who went to theaters over the opening week and participated in the “See ‘African Cats,’ Save the Savanna” campaign, more than 50,000 acres of land has been saved. Because with each ticket purchased, Disneynature vowed to donate money to the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) and help preserve part of the African savanna that is frequently used by lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, giraffes and other animals.

To give you some perspective, that 50,000 acres equates to 100 Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Parks or more than twice the size of Manhattan. That’s big!

“The ‘See “African Cats,” Save the Savanna’ program transformed the moviegoing experience into tangible on-the-ground conservation action,” said Dr. Patrick Bergin, CEO, African Wildlife Foundation. “The commitment of Disneynature combined with the passion of moviegoers will raise critical funds to conserve the land that the magnificent species featured in ‘African Cats’ call home. Through this amazing collaboration, we celebrate our 50th Anniversary together with Disneynature and all the people who are helping establish the Amboseli Wildlife Corridor.”

Even though opening week has ended, you can still participate in helping to save even more of the African savanna. Disneynature has committed to saving an additional 15,000 acres through the sale of artwork and jewelry inspired by the film, and through the sale of Jordin Sparks’ new single “The World I Knew.” Click here to learn more about how you can help!
