It’s Earth Day and Disney is celebrating the event by demonstrating its support for environmental protection. Disney+ got a brand new 4 part documentary series called “Secrets Of The Whales”, which is available from today.

“Secrets of the Whales,” from National Geographic, plunges viewers deep within the epicenter of whale culture to experience the extraordinary communication skills and intricate social structures of five different whale species: orcas, humpbacks, belugas, narwhals and sperm whales. Filmed over three years in 24 locations, throughout this epic journey, we learn that whales are far more complex and more like us than ever imagined.

Throughout the month, Disney has added a Earth Month collection on Disney+, which can be found on the Disney+ home page and includes many fantastic films and shows including:
