Summer 2013 Travel Blog: Jane Travels to Alaska with Disneynature to Witness Bears in the Wilderness

Last summer, Jane had the opportunity to travel to Alaska, a place where she has always wanted to visit.  Jane’s trip to Alaska was for the filming of the new Disneynature movie, “Bears”, showcasing the life of two mother bears and their young cubs. Jane had an amazing time visiting Alaska’s national parks, observing bears in the wild and experiencing the natural beauty Alaska has to offer.

Jane Supports Disneynature as Ambassador

I am very proud to serve as a Disneynature Ambassador and to join Disney in speaking up about the importance of protected areas like America’s national parks to preserving the habitats and natural resources all of us need to thrive. 
 
I joined the Disneynature team while they were filming the movie Bears, I witnessed first-hand the beauty of America’s national parks.

Mischievous Lemba

Lemba likes to play with her caregivers' shoes. The caregivers at Tchimpounga are very patient and allow the small chimpanzee to nip, hit and hide their sandals.

Mbebo and La Vieille

Mbebo now lives in La Vieille's enclosure.  La Vieille is the nearly 50-year-old female chimpanzee who acts as an adoptive mother to many o f Tchimpounga’s young chimpanzees.  In the enclosure, Mbebo plays with Leki, Makasi, Alex, Ollombo, Mbebo and Mambou. 

Throughout the day, the chimps run and jump without stopping.  On many occasions, they play around La Vieille.  The only time La Vieille can get some rest is during lunchtime when the little chimps sit quietly and eat.
