Update 04/20/12:  Entries are now closed.  The winners have been notified and have 24 hours to reply before an alternate is selected.  Thank you to everyone who participated!

Update:  Day 2, Day 3, Day 4 and Day 5 of the See Chimpanzee, Save Chimpanzees Challenge are posted!

There are just 4 days until opening weekend for Disneynature’s new true-life adventure Chimpanzee!  And to celebrate we have more free giveaways – a pair of movie tickets and another Chimpanzee prize pack!  See below for details.

In honor of Earth Day and the Jane Goodall Institute, stay tuned this week as we share Chimpanzee images, facts and other movie goodies on our website and Facebook page each day of the countdown to opening weekend.  For every moviegoer who sees Chimpanzee during the film’s opening week (April 20-26, 2012), Disneynature will make a donation to the Jane Goodall Institute through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund in order to protect chimpanzees and their habitats, now and into the future.



Chimpanzee Fact #1

Chimpanzees are endangered:  Just 100 years ago, roughly 1 million chimpanzees lived in the lush rainforests of equatorial Africa.  Today, only 1/10 remain, primarily due to habitat loss and illegal hunting.  Current trends indicate that African ape populations will decline by an additional 80% in the next 30 to 40 years.

Will you pledge to join the See Chimpanzee, Save Chimpanzees challenge and see the movie during opening weekend to help save chimpanzees?

    The first time I saw the trailer for this film I cried. Any story featuring an orphan touches my heart and I’ve been so impressed with Disney’s previous nature films. I am taking me four-year-old nephew to “meet” Oscar tomorrow (opening) night and can’t wait to share the experience with him…. also, I’m a big fan of “Switchfoot” and loved they they were used in the trailer.

  34. I most definately make the pledge to go see Chimpanzee this weekend with my daughter and mother. I would love to win the special prize pack. Chimps are the most amazing animal in the universe and my favorite. I have posted a blog to my facebook accout to encourage everyone to do the same. I wish their would be a grand prize of …. A trip to visit Oscar and Jane in Africa. That would be PRICELESS!!!

  35. I’m looking forward to seeing this movie with my niece.
