Netflix just released its latest documentary series, Our Planet and it’s been getting a lot of attention. Why? Well, unlike other nature documentaries, the series is a beautiful yet painful depiction of the effects of climate change on Earth’s flora and fauna.
Of course, Twitter has been abuzz about it, so have a look at these tweets before you dive in to Our Planet.
These scenes from @ourplanet are out of this world! The series takes you into incredible places you never knew existed, from vast starry deserts to spectacular frozen worlds. Have you seen it yet? #ShareOurPlanet pic.twitter.com/D6O5eQUZC1— WWF 🐼 (@WWF) April 9, 2019
I’m just one episode into #OurPlanet and you know what. Fuck humans. We deserve to die.— andy mikesic (@andymikesic) April 8, 2019
SIr David Attenborough has issued his starkest warning yet about the future of the planet, declaring: “What we do in the next 20 years will determine the future for all life on earth.” #Netflix #OurPlanet pic.twitter.com/1O5CyDUSqo— Andy Brown (@AndyBrown1_) April 8, 2019
Our Planet, an original Netflix docu, is such a delight to watch. This has got to be one of the most beautiful and very educational nature docus ever. It talks about more than just how beautiful our world is, it also makes us realize that we need to preserve what is left of it. pic.twitter.com/VtaavFXM2p— Gerard J. (@rard25) April 9, 2019
I am CRYING actual real tears while watching “Our Planet”.— Amy 🌈🌈🌈 (@RealAmyD) April 10, 2019
There are walruses jumping off a cliff into the water, and they didn’t make it to the water. My heart is breaking. pic.twitter.com/WDQDQtTJpZ
Watching Our Planet.— David Ames (@semadivad) April 8, 2019
I say it every time, but David Attenborough is so remarkable.
I feel actual shame when he comments on how much we’re destroying the planet.
Like I’ve disappointed a parent.
I can’t even count how many times I’ve cried watching Our Planet so far😥🌎— rósh☽ (@roisinmariaa) April 9, 2019
We need to do something about OUR PLANET now!— Matthew Lush (@MatthewLush) April 9, 2019
This Walrus scene is a rude awakening of climate change.
If I were ever to buy into a conspiracy theory, the top contender would have to be that the Netflix new show “our planet“ is some high-level CGI shit. I’ve never seen shots and cinematography that good.— myfavoritethings (@DerekWa45736480) April 10, 2019
I just finished watching the documentary entitled “Our Planet”……— Misael (@misaelb97) April 9, 2019
CAN WE HUMANS STOP FUCKING UP OUR PLANET?! THE POLAR BEARS ARE DYING. THE WALRUSES ARE DYING, ETC. These animals depend on life in the Polar region to SURVIVE.
first episode into Netflix’ our planet and the productions are already blowing me away. it’s beautifully shot, narratively well-written and the music scoring is just on point. go sit for 10 hours and educate yourself about our dying planet. I highly recommend it. pic.twitter.com/QLKd6lwdjn— #DirkForever (@Iscouar) April 9, 2019
The “Our Planet” intro makes me want to run through a brick wall— Nash Grier (@Nashgrier) April 9, 2019
Decided to watch “Our Planet” on Netflix, but hearing about how Coral Reefs are dying because of an increase in water temperature due to climate change is shocking. We need to do something before it’s too late!😭😭 #OurPlanet— Liv🌹 (@Liv_Carrick) April 9, 2019
This is a bit different from my usual tweets but whateves. Netflix has a new series called Our Planet. It’s narrated by David Attenborough and it puts into perspective how delicate the natural world is. How we should protect what we have left in our world. I highly recommend it pic.twitter.com/0FS05KmSPr— Saberspark (@Saberspark) April 8, 2019
Our Planet w/ David Attenborough + 4K on @netflix may be the most beautiful footage ever shot in human history. It’s so ground-breakingly stunning it almost feels CGI. Watch it. pic.twitter.com/ROfb3OQ8lV— Michael Condrey (@MichaelCondrey) April 7, 2019
Watching birds dance and impress their mates on Our Planet (Netflix) is the funniest shit ever.— Drew | IRL (@DrewRamosNYC) April 8, 2019

Burst into tears watching #OurPlanet , that walrus scene was the most harrowing thing I’ve ever seen on a documentary. But well done #netflix, sometimes the heartbreaking scenes are what will inspire people to make a difference— Rhiannon (@_rhiannonirving) April 7, 2019
Turns out David Attenborough’s Our Planet and Ricky Gervais’s Afterlife goes pretty hand in hand. 🌍 pic.twitter.com/lB7bEvHmNR— Justin Fairweather (@Fairweather93) April 7, 2019
Watching #OurPlanet is the worst and the best experience. Devastating yet brilliant, I’m in awe of our planet. What legacy do we want to leave to future generations of humans and wildlife? That’s what we must ask ourselves.— Bella Lack 🌱 (@BellaLack) April 7, 2019
These tweets say it all.
