The Best Nature Documentaries on Netflix Will Make You Worldlier

Unfortunately, in Los Angeles, there aren't a lot of green spaces that aren't luxury golf courses, so as odd as this might sound, I often turn to Netflix to watch nature documentaries to fill the tree-shaped void in my field of vision. Although some of my personal favorites are no longer streaming on the platform (Netflix, if you're reading this, please bring back Chasing Ice and Virunga), there are still lots of nature-focused films worth adding to your queue.

After scrolling through the media giant's current offering, I'm recommending the eight best nature documentaries on Netflix that will, without a doubt, make you worldlier. From a visually stunning film about the migration of the monarch butterfly to an eye-opening look at the illegal ivory trade, these are the flicks that I think everyone should watch this Sunday night. Now, all that's left to do is pop some popcorn.
