Our Planet is the latest stunning nature documentary series hosted by David Attenborough. This eight-part "ambitious documentary of spectacular scope" is accompanied by a similarly ambitious companion website. Here, visitors can watch video previews and behind-the-scenes clips for each of the documentary's episodes and they can also explore an interactive digital globe that leads viewers on a multimedia journey through the various habitats featured in Our Planet. A recurring theme throughout this documentary and website is the impact that humanity is having on the environment and the wildlife that depend on it. For example, in the jungles section of the explorable globe, visitors can see how the global extent of tropical forest habitats before humans compares to what remains today. The site also includes a section for schools and young people, which features links to additional educational resources such as downloadable guides for discussing Our Planet in the classroom, virtual biome tours, a link to Skype in the Classroom resources for this documentary, and more. Our Planet premiered on Netflix in April 2019 and it was produced in collaboration with the World Wildlife Fund and Silverback Films, the filmmakers behind Planet Earth and Blue Planet.
