Disney has released some details and images of the upcoming National Geographic documentary series “Secrets Of The Whales”, which will be coming to Disney+ on Earth Day, Thursday 22nd April.
“Secrets of the Whales” plunges viewers deep within the epicentre 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. The series is executive produced by James Cameron, Maria Wilhelm, Brian Armstrong and Shannon Malone-deBenedictis.
Here’s the official description for this episode:
Secrets of the Whales Episode 101
Orcas across the globe use unique strategies to stay on top of the food chain. Patagonia’s whales catch sea lions off the beach, New Zealand’s orcas root out hidden stingrays, and Norway’s sea giants master the tail slap. Witness five powerful orca matriarchs pass down their family hunting traditions to the next generation, preserving their way of life before the customs are lost forever.
