5 Amazing Must Watch Environmental Shows

Are you sick of watching silly TV shows and seeking something more significant to do with your time? We’ve compiled a list of eye-opening documentaries that take a deep dive into the environment and will make you reconsider things you previously took for granted.

So, take a seat, hit play, and be ready to glimpse the wider perspective of the world around you.

The 11th Hour (2007)


The 11th Hour is the last opportunity for change. The movie examines how we’ve reached this point, including how we live, how we affect the planet’s ecosystems, and what we can do to alter our trajectory. Features ongoing discussions with experts from around the world, including former Soviet Prime Minister Mikhail Gorbachev, renowned scientist Stephen Hawking, former CIA Director R. James Woolsey, and sustainable design experts William McDonough and Bruce Mau, as well as more than 50 leading scientists, thinkers, and leaders who discuss the most pressing issues facing our planet and people. Leila Conners Petersen and Nadia Conners wrote and directed the film, which is narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio.

Seaspiracy (2021)



Seaspiracy is a frightening documentary on the negative effects of fishing on the ecosystem. The film looks into the effects of humans on marine life and advocates for the abolition of fish consumption. The central topic of the video is that the seafood industry is destroying marine life at such a rapid pace that “the seas will be empty of fish in the next 27 years,” and that the government is complicit in the destruction for commercial reasons. This movie concludes that there is no such thing as sustainable fishing anywhere in our world and that to rescue marine life, we should cease eating fish entirely and replace it with plant-based foods.

David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet (2020)


A Life on Our Planet is an 83-minute Netflix biographical documentary narrated by David Attenborough, a world-renowned naturalist, and Emmy-winning narrator. Throughout the film, Attenborough describes how he has watched our planet deteriorate throughout his 60-year career. He brings us to many locations around the world, from Ukraine to Africa, to demonstrate how man is responsible for the degradation of our earth. 

What’s interesting about this film is that Attenborough offers suggestions for a better future. He is a supporter of poverty reduction, universal health care, and education. He also advocates for the use of renewable energy, the establishment of no-fish zones, agricultural innovation, and the halting of deforestation to restore biodiversity in our environment.

Our Planet (2019)


In this creative and original Netflix documentary series, be astounded by the wonders of Planet Earth. Thanks to the miracles of cutting-edge technology, you will be able to explore spectacular regions that are inaccessible to most guys. But there’s a terrible truth beneath the dazzling scenery and fascinating natural beauties displayed in each episode: they’re fragile and at risk of extinction owing to man’s irresponsible attitude toward the environment. To quote The New York Times, you’ll discover that “the predator is us.” This film will arouse your inner eco-warrior, as you will want to avoid what they predict will happen in the future when nature reclaims what was once theirs and people become a footnote in our planet’s history.
