Universal Pictures and Ad Council have teamed up to make a public service announcement for DiscoverTheForest.org using footage from Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, opening in theaters on March 2. The PSA is described as follows:
This PSA campaign aims to inspire tweens (aged 8-12) and their parents to re-connect with nature, experiencing it first-hand. The campaign brings to life the joy and excitement kids have when they discover the wonders of nature, helping create interest in their environment and a lifelong relationship with it.
Nature gives teens the ability to explore, use their imagination, discover new animals and plants, and engage in adventurous play. Being in nature frees them from their crazy, scheduled days and offers the ability to get lost in something totally unmanaged, unexpected and utterly surprising. Nature instills a peace and calmness that they cant experience in their daily lives, and the more they discover the natural world around them, the more they will feel connected to the world and better understand their relationship to it.
