Between April 22 and April 28, a portion of the box-office proceeds from the Disney movie Oceans will go to support the Nature Conservancy’s work to protect coral reefs in The Bahamas.

This year, you’ll have a unique opportunity to support the Conservancy’s work in The Bahamas when Disneynature’s new film OCEANS opens in movie theaters across the United States and Canada on Earth Day 2010. In honor of each moviegoer who sees the movie during its opening week (April 22 through April 28), Disneynature will give a portion of ticket sales to The Nature Conservancy to help protect coral reefs.

Through this effort, Disneynature, through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, and the Conservancy will support the expansion and management of new marine parks through the new Adopt a Coral Reef project in The Bahamas.
