Media That Matters: Our Planet

Experience our planet's natural beauty and examine how climate change impacts all living creatures in this ambitious documentary of spectacular scope.

Our Planet is like no nature documentary you have ever seen before. Taking over four years to make, this series spans 50 countries and 7 continents. The 8-piece series captures epic footage of incredible, diverse, and unique creatures in their natural habitats. But amidst all of this beauty lies a horrible truth... nature and its many interwoven tentacles are in grave danger. Not due to some imminent natural disaster, but due to the actions of man. The series shows spectacular images of the true awesomeness of nature, explains how much we all depend on it, and details how we are destroying it.

The series explores how humans contribute to the decline of nature and in an unpreachy way shows us how we are annihilating the only earth we know. Environmental experts and scientists know this; they know just how bad it really is and the critical point we currently find ourselves in. But this is not made for them. This is made for the average person. The series pushes viewers to a website "to discover what we need to do now to protect our jungles, at a moment when it has never been more urgent and important to recognize the fragility of our world." This series was made to change and expand the mind of as many people as possible to lend a helping hand in the fight against climate control and the dark toll humans make on earth.
