How many times in your life have you watched a documentary and it completely changed the way you saw the world? Well, maybe not the entire world, but it caused you to reevaluate some aspect of your life and see it through different eyes. If you’ve seen Blackfish, you know exactly what we mean.

Oftentimes, documentaries can inspire viewers to take action or stand up for a cause that they might not have even considered before. This is the real power of these incredible films. As Green Monsters, we are always looking for opportunities to learn more about the environment and animals, and watching documentaries can be an entertaining way to become more informed.

So, if you are looking to kick back with some popcorn and soak up some earth and animal knowledge, we have quite the list of options for you! Remember, watching documentaries with friends and family is a great way to share the causes you care about with others in a fun way – who knows, they may be inspired to change too!

1. Racing Extinction

This new film from Oceanic Preservation Society (OPS), the makers of The Cove, looks into our world’s current crisis of mass species extinctions. Chronicling the many human drivers of species loss, including climate change, habitat destruction, the industrial food system, and the illegal wildlife trade, OPS opens our eyes to the realities of the planet’s sixth period of mass extinction. While the premise of the film might be foreboding, their message is one of hope and redemption. Racing Extinction just premiered at Sundance and will be released to the public later this year. Check out the trailer below and follow the Racing Extinction website for news and updates.

2. Cowspiracy

The impact of livestock production on the planet is too often underestimated and overlooked. In fact, many environmental advocates are wary of even considering the enormous amount of greenhouse gases this industry creates because of the unrelenting power and influence of the animal agriculture industry. The makers of Cowspiracy, however, are not afraid to confront this momentous truth. Looking at the many ways that animal agriculture destroys the environment, this documentary is sure to change the way you look at your diet. You can stream the film online or order the DVD, you can even organize a screening on the Cowspiracy website.

3. Virunga

This groundbreaking documentary is available exclusively through Netflix. Chronicling the many challenges facing the conservation of Africa’s oldest National Park, Virunga opens our eyes to imminent loss of this precious wild habitat. Home to some of the world’s last remaining Mountain gorillas, Virunga shows us how oil interests and poachers are systematically trying to take over the park. As one of the world’s last remaining biodiversity hotspots, it is more important than ever that people stand with Virunga park rangers and rally together to save this incredible, wild place.

4. Last Days of Ivory

The illegal ivory trade is the single-handedly leading the elephant population to extinction. Every 15 minutes an elephant is poached for their ivory. Given these statistics, it has been estimated that the African elephant will be extinct from the wild within the next two decadesLast Days of Ivory, looks into how this violence against elephants is tied to global terrorism and other crimes. Many people do not recognize that when they purchase ivory, they are funding atrocities against both humans and animals. This short film can be streamed on YouTube for free and shared with incredible ease. So let’s pass this important message on! 

5. Earthlings

Earthlings is not a documentary for the faint of heart, but its message is incredibly true and powerful. Examining how animals suffer for human use, be it for food, entertainment, fashion or even companionship, this film has been nicknamed the “Vegan Maker.” While the message might be a bit hard to take, Earthlings forces us to confront our abusive relationship with animals and the natural world and question how we’ve come to this. You can stream the entire video on the Earthling’s website.

6. Chasing Ice

The loss of the world’s ice caps is possibly the most visible evidence of global climate change that we have. In this documentary, environmental photographer, James Balong conducts a survey of the Arctic’s ice caps and witnesses the shocking loss of ice first hand. Chasing Ice shows us firsthand what the planet looks like when it is overwhelmed with carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, and while Balong’s shots of Iceland are breathtaking, the truth they reveal is anything but pretty.

After being in relationship for 9 years,my husband broke up with me all was in
vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I
begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I
explained my problem to someone online and he suggested that I should
rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring
him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no
choice than to try it, I emailed the spell caster, and he told me there
is no problem that everything will be okay before seven days, that my
ex husband will return to me before seven days, he cast the spell and
surprisingly in the six day, it was around 6pm. My ex husband called me, I
was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was
so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to
him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that
was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have
made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I
would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only
real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and
who is different from all the other once out there.So friends my advise is if you have such problem you can email him on ([email protected]) or you can whatsapp him with this number +2348115204568 Sir i am indeed grateful for the help, i will forever recommend my friends to you.

OMG!! This is certainly a shocking and a genuine Testimony..I visited a forum here on the Internet on the 15th of April 2018 , And i saw a marvelous testimony of this powerful and great spell caster called Dr Oniha on the forum..I never believed it, because i never heard nor learn anything about spell nor magic before.. Not a soul would have been able to influence me about magical spells, not until Dr Oniha did it for me and restored my marriage of 8 years back to me and brought my spouse back to me just as i read on the Internet..i was truly astonished and shocked when my husband knelt down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept him back.. I am really short of expressions, and i don\'t know how much to convey my appreciation to you Dr Oniha you are a God sent to me and my entire family.. And now i am a joyful woman once again thanks for your good work and for restoring happiness to my home..
HERE IS DR ONIHA WEBSITE: http://onihaspells.website2.me OR HIS EMAIL : [email protected] FOR ANY KINDS OF HELP. OR CALL HIM MOBILE NUMBER +1 (669)-221-3962.
