After all this self-iso at home, it’s normal to get a little cabin fever. Now’s not the time to travel the world and explore natures best. But thankfully, Disney+ has joined forces with National Geographic to give us nature docos that feel like a breath of fresh air.

So once you're done with the old-school Disney Channel original movies and reboots, why not give some of these a try?

Great Migrations

Since we're all stuck at home, why not watch animals across the planet on their migration journeys? This series follows different species through their epic migrations that could literally mean life or death. From penguins, desert elephants, crabs, sperm whales, wildebeests, and more.
