Disney has released some details and images of the second episode 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 102
In a classroom that spans the world’s oceans, from Alaska’s herring-rich coastline to Antarctica’s feeding grounds, humpback calves learn their family’s traditions. Cooperative hunting strategies, the longest migrations of any known mammal and communicating through complex songs to find a mate are all lessons absorbed by the younger generation.
