Our Top 4 Must Watch Environmental Documentaries

The more we learn about the natural world, the more inspired we become to protect it. To celebrate Earth Month, here are our top 4 must watch environmental documentaries that are available on Netflix. Each has given us specific insight into a certain event, an industry, amazing animals and plants and the devastating effects mankind is having on our planet. There is however, hope. With awareness and education, we can change and make better choices. Together we can make a difference. 

 

 

A LIFE ON OUR PLANET

No documentary list is complete without a mention of David Attenborough and this is perhaps one of his most powerful yet. Attenborough talks about the changes he has seen over his lifetime as he documents the natural world and about how we can reverse the damage that humans have inflicted. 

 

 

 

SEASPIRACY

From the makers of Cowspiracy, this documentary has caused quite a stir and takes a look at the human impact on the oceans from overfishing, microplastics and our eating habits and the ways in which we can help reduce our footprint to restore the health of our planet. 

 

 

DamNation - THE PROBLEM WITH HYDROPOWER

A documentary produced by Patagonia that highlights the declining health of wild rivers and how engineering of dams can impact not communities, ecosystems and our own future.  

 

 

 

MY OCTOPUS TEACHER 

Not your usual kind of environmental documentary, My Octopus Teacher follows the relationship between filmmaker and diver Craig Foster and an octopus he befriends in a kelp forest. A touching story that unearths some surprising octopus behaviours and also reminds us of the many reasons we have to protect this Earth and her creatures.

"An intention is a directed impulse of consciousness that contains the seed form of that which you aim to create. Like real seeds, intentions can't grow if you hold on to them. Only when you release your intentions into the fertile depths of your consciousness can they grow and flourish." - Deepak Chopra

Tired of setting resolutions that never stick? Learn why setting intentions is a more effective approach for creating lasting change in your life.
