Sigourney Weaver (Avatar) narrates the series, which is executive produced by James Cameron, Maria Wilhelm, Brian Armstrong, and Shannon Malone-deBenedictis. All four episodes begin streaming on Earth Day.
Heroes of the Oceans—Premiering on Earth Day, April 22, on National Geographic Channel (8 p.m. EST)
Legendary oceanographer Sylvia Earle and a cast of pioneering marine scientists tell the story of the incredible work being undertaken across the planet to protect the fragile ecosystem of our oceans. It’s a showcase of the wonder of the sea, of the living laboratory we all live in and of the vital science being carried out beneath the waves every single day.
Kingdom of the Polar Bears—Premiering on Earth Day, April 22, on Nat Geo Wild (8 p.m. EST)
As the Arctic changes faster than ever, a team of polar bear guides prepares for an epic journey: a first-ever attempt to follow the bears on the sea ice of Hudson Bay. In this high-stakes high-reward venture, they will document the secret world of bears, a mysterious and disappearing realm that is the bears’ key to survival. Life on the ice is a critical time for these bears. It also remains undocumented, deemed too dangerous for humans to follow, hinted at only through aerial reconnaissance and satellite collar research. The team, armed with traditional ecological knowledge and the latest 4K camera technology, will witness never-before-seen seal-hunting strategies and document rapid adaptations to climate change, including whale predation and open-water hunting.
