The eight-part original documentary series is now streaming globally on Netflix.
In response to teachers' requests for documentaries while school children are at home during COVID-19, Netflix has also released the series on YouTube.
Voiced by Sir David Attenborough, the series showcases the world’s incredible species and most at-risk habitats in ways they have never been seen before—from ice caps and deep ocean to deserts and remote forests.
More than just a showcase of the planet’s wonders, Our Planet aims to inspire people around the world to understand the natural world as never before. WWF worked with Netflix and Silverback Films to ensure Our Planet is supported by the latest ground-breaking science and highlights the Earth’s most pressing challenges.
This is the moment
It’s never been more urgent and important to recognize the fragility of our world. We’re losing nature at an unprecedented rate. Sixty percent of vertebrate species have disappeared in the last 50 years, according to WWF’s recent Living Planet Report. The health of our forests, oceans and fresh water are all at risk.
Nature isn’t something we can choose to care about. It’s vital to our very existence and our future. Our homes, our health, the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink—our lives and all the things we care about—simply can’t exist in a world without nature.
Today, we can see the impact of our actions on our planet. We also have the opportunity to change course and solve these problems. WWF exists to protect nature and to build a better future for wildlife and people. Our Planet helps bring WWF’s urgent mission to people around the world.
We can begin a better future for our planet. But we can’t do it alone.
