Chimpanzee Swings into Theaters Today – Win Free Tickets and Prize Pack


Celebrate Earth Day with Oscar the chimpanzee!  Disneynature takes moviegoers deep into the forests of Africa with Chimpanzee, a new true-life adventure introducting a lovable young chimpanzee named Oscar in a story of family bonds and individual triumph.  Oscar’s playful curiosity and zest for discovery showcase the intelligence and ingenuity of some of the most extraordinary personalities in the animal kingdom.



The world is a playground for little Oscar, who’d rather make mayhem than join his parents for an afternoon nap.  When Oscar’s family is confronted by a rival band of chimpanzees, he is left to fed for himself until a surprising ally steps in and changes his life forever.  Directed by Alastair Fothergill (African Cats and Earth) and Mark Linfield (Earth), Chimpanzee swings into theaters for Earth Day, on April 20, 2012.



Chimpanzee Challenge Fact #5:  Currently 269 chimpanzees live in 34 United States zoos that are accredited with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). These facilities are dedicated to excellence in animal care, conservation, education and science and meet the highest standards in animal health, husbandry and welfare. See Chimpanzee, Save Chimpanzees!

Yesterday we shared a bit about chimpanzees, the dangers they face and how we can help.  Another way to help is to support zoos accredited with the AZA.  Chimpanzees within these facilities serve as animal ambassadors for their wild counterparts by raising awareness and appreciation and inspiring conservation action.  Many AZA-accredited facilities participate in conservation projects that protect wild chimpanzees and their African habitats.
