This 4-part documentary series will debut on the National Geographic Channel and Nat Geo Wild on Earth Day, this Friday, 22 April 2022.
Epic, revealing, and emotional, that’s what you get when you immerse yourself in the mysterious world of whales and see life and love through their eyes. SECRETS OF THE WHALES, a Disney+ original series from National Geographic and directed by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker and conservationist James Cameron, transports viewers to the heart of whale culture to witness the extraordinary communication skills and intricate social structures of five different whale species: orcas, humpbacks, belugas, narwhals, and sperm whales.
The four-part Earth Day special-event series, featuring the extensive knowledge and skill of acclaimed National Geographic Explorer and Photographer Brian Skerry, unveils new science and technology to spotlight whales as they form lifelong friendships, teach clan heritage and traditions to their young, and grieve deeply for the loss of loved ones.
Throughout this epic journey, which was shot over three years in 24 different locations around the world, we discover that whales are far more complex and similar to us than we ever imagined. This is a personal story that few people have had the opportunity to witness… until now.
Secrets of the Whales is narrated by award-winning actress and conservationist Sigourney Weaver.
