Happy Earth Day!

Wednesday marks the 50th anniversary of the fight for environmental justice and climate change reform with the annual global celebration.

Amid the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, many parks, landmarks and zoos are closed to encourage social distancing and limit the spread of the virus, leaving us unable to enjoy the holiday as we normally would.

However, this does not mean you can’t still celebrate our planet! Disney + released a list of movies and TV shows available on its site that one can watch to get in the spirit of Earth Day.

From the sci-fi thriller Avatar to National Geographic’s Jane Goodall documentary, there’s plenty of ways to learn a little more about our planet from the comfort of your own home.
