What is Our Planet II about?

Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, Our Planet is a British nature documentary programme made for Netflix. The second season will look at the migration patterns of animals around the globe.

Footage has been shot of creatures in places including Africa, India, China, the Arctic and more.

As with past series, viewers will follow the stories of the animals as they navigate their way in the world.

According to Netflix, this season we can expect to see creatures such as an abandoned Laysan albatross chick determining the best way to leave his island of origin; a herd of pronghorn antelope attempting to cross the wild west of southern Wyoming to the Rocky Mountains; and billions of minuscule red crabs attempting to cross from beaches to the forest where they’ll be safe.

Last season looked at the Earth’s most important habitats - and how climate change impacts all living things.
