Celebrating Earth Day with Disney

Today marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, and Disney has been honoring the important role that nature plays in igniting joy during these unprecedented times for the last month by sharing educational information about this extraordinary planet we inhabit.

And for over 30 years the Disney Parks have been dedicated to environmental and sustainability initiatives, implementing programs in support of waste and emissions reduction, and water and resource conservation.

They are continually exploring, testing, and implementing new ways to turn everyday occurrences into sustainable experiences.

These efforts have led to incredible progress towards conserving natural resources – protecting the magic of nature for the future of our business, community, and the planet.

This year also marks a special year for several anniversaries for The Walt Disney Company.

The Disney Conservation Fund (DCF) is proudly celebrating 25 wonderful years of supporting nonprofit organizations globally in their efforts to save wildlife, inspire action, and protect the planet.

The Walt Disney Company is also celebrating one year since welcoming National Geographic into the Disney family.

National Geographic recently launched NatGeo@Home to support families and caregivers during the COVID-19 crisis.

Nat Geo at Home Earth Day 2020

The hub is home to free educational resources and content to help parents and educators keep kids engaged while schools are closed, including an exciting neighborhood safari. 

The Earth Day Neighborhood Safari invites families to design their own “safari stop” with resources available on NatGeo@Home, complete with lessons from Disney Animation, Pixar, and Marvel Studios on how to draw your favorite safari animal. National Geographic is collecting a feed of “safari art” on NatGeo@Home to help bring neighborhoods all over the world together.
