In less than a human lifetime, the earth’s fragility has become strikingly apparent; as our population has swelled, nature has diminished. Today, we have become the greatest threat to the health of our planet.
But, there is hope. We know the science and we have the solutions. Together, we can create a future where people and nature thrive.
The result of a four year collaboration between Netflix, Silverback Films and WWF, Our Planet will explore the rich natural wonders, iconic species and stunning wildlife spectacles that still remain, and reveal the key issues that urgently threaten their existence.
The groundbreaking eight part series will be accompanied by a wealth of interactive, educational, and accessible content which tell its deeper stories.
Our mission is to inspire people all over our planet to understand it — and the challenges it faces — like never before. If we can truly understand why nature matters to us all, we can restore it and in time, even reverse its steep decline.
Our Planet will provoke one of the most important conversations of our time — about the one home we all share.
