By purchasing a Blu-ray Combo Pack or DVD of Disneynature OCEANS between October 19 and 25, viewers can help conserve our world's oceans and the species that depend on them for survival. In honor of each Blu-ray and DVD purchased during that period Disneynature, through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, will help establish new marine protected areas in The Bahamas with The Nature Conservancy, one of the largest conservation organizations in the world. In The Bahamas, The Nature Conservancy and its local partners, including the Bahamian government, are establishing a new marine protected area along the west side of Andros Island. Currently, new marine protected area boundaries are being defined that will expand the part from 300,000 acres to over 1 million acres. These areas will contain miles of vital coral reefs that provide natural habitat, nurseries and feeding grounds for hundreds of marine species.
