Secrets of the Whales


This four-part National Geographic nature documentary is all about the sea’s most soulful creatures, and it’s arriving just in time for Earth Day. It follows five different whale species: orcas, humpbacks, belugas, narwhals, and sperm whales. Filmed over three years in 24 locations all over the world, this docuseries gives one of the most in-depth looks at whale society ever caught on (very wet) camera. It’s executive-produced by James Cameron and narrated by Sigourney Weaver. I Don’t know about you, but I get very emotional about whales. they’re like giant people who live in the ocean and eat tons of krill!
