An Important Message from Walt Disney to all citizens of the world

Last week, when i prepared my tribute for Walt's birthday, i was looking for a rare video of Walt and i think this one found on Youtube couldn't coincide more perfectly with the important meeting that will begin next Monday in Copenhagen. As we all know our planet is in danger, because of global warming some islands and many species will probably disappear forever and all we can hope is that all countries who are this week at Copenhagen will took the right decisions.

But as you will see, back 53 years ago, Walt was already warning American audience that wildlife was in danger! Honorary Chair for National Wildlife Week Walt Disney was PSAs from 1956, 1957, 1961, 1964 and one unknown date. The video below shows Walt's presentation messages at the beginning of these shows. So, here is Walt asking you in this rare video to care about environment and wildlife which, by the way, confirms that he had the right vision on really everything.

Alain, Walt was trying to preserve nature and the environment even when recreating it for Disneyland back in the 50's and early 60's in Rivers of America, Nature's Wonderland, Jungle Cruise, Diorama, Steam trains,the Stagecoach and Mule ride experiences. Fishing for catfish with Huckleberry Finn was well remembered. Today his Environmental division continues to safeguard the Disney environment.
