This post is sponsored by Disneynature's "Bears," in theaters April 18. 

In addition to showing off the beauty of the national park where it filmed, Disneynature's Bears will also donate money to the parks. 

The film, set in Alaska, will  help support the National Park Foundation. For every ticket sold during opening week, April 18-24, Disneynature will make a contribution to the foundation to support conservation efforts in national parks focused on wildlife protection, habitat restoration and conservation research and education.

Actor John C. Reilly, who narrates the film, said that was a reason he joined Bears. 

"What really drew me to the project was the fact that Disneynature was so supportive of animals that need protection," Reilly says in the video above. "I think anyone who sees the film will be inspired to support the national parks because there's an emotional component that stays with you for a long time."
