As part of their multi-project deal with Netflix, Former President and First Lady Obama have been giving us some of the best educational and informational programming we've seen in years.
First Lady Michelle Obama gave us the "Becoming" documentary then the children's show "Waffles and Mochi" that taught children about healthy eating. Now it's the gentleman's turn at the helm and he's coming out swinging and narrating a show with the voice we all know and love!
"Our Great National Parks" is described as "an epic five-part series narrated by President Barack Obama that invites viewers to celebrate and discover the power of our planet’s greatest national parks and wild spaces."
Here's the official synopsis via Netflix:
From the executive producer of Blue Planet II comes OUR GREAT NATIONAL PARKS, a breathtaking five-part series executive produced and narrated by President Barack Obama - who protected more public lands and waters than any other U.S. President in history - that invites viewers to experience nature in the world's most iconic national parks. Spanning five continents, the series brims with wonder, humor, and optimism as each episode tells the story of a national park through the lives of its wildest residents — both big and exceptionally small — and explores our changing relationship with wilderness. Traveling from the waters of Monterey Bay, California, to the bright red soil of Kenya’s Tsavo National Park, the lush rainforests of Indonesia’s Gunung Leuser National Park, the majestic terrain of Chilean Patagonia, and more, OUR GREAT NATIONAL PARKS beckons us to get out and explore, create new ways for these wild places to thrive, and vigorously preserve them for future generations to come.
