My family loves animals. My son Ty’s bedroom is even jungle themed! If it’s anything to do with nature and the great outdoors, the five of us are all over it. We love adventuring to parks or learning about new species. And recently, we’ve been watching nature documentaries together in the evenings.
We’ve been inspired and amazed. Some of the programs have made us laugh; others have made us cry. The tales of the animals on our planet are more fascinating than any Hollywood script can offer. Yet, we’re often finishing these documentaries upset, pessimistic, and disheartened.
More and more of the nature documentaries we watch are finishing with calls to action. Nearly all actively publishing climate scientists (97–98%) agree that climate change is happening right now. And these films are highlighting the devastating effect that global warming is having on our planet.
