In addition to previously recommended Earth Day movies, take a look at these gorgeous documentaries about the creatures with whom we share this great planet:

1. March of the Penguins This worldwide sensation takes us to Antarctica, where these elegant birds triumph over brutal cold to protect their fragile eggs and tender chicks.

2. Meerkat Manor The ultimate reality show, this meerkat community has avid followers who mourned the passing of matriarch Flower.

5. Growing Up Wild, Vol. 1: Amazing Baby Animals Even the littlest children will be captivated by these adorable baby animals.

Jennifer Merin has a great list of Earth Day documentaries, too.

    OK, it’s a stretch, but I might suggest “Swamp Thing”. It is, at its heart, an ecological morality tale.
    Any of the old Disney nature series might apply as well. The same can be said for the body of work from Marlin Perkins – and Jim.

    For sure! Wild America, The Living Desert, and if you are looking for cautionary tales, even Swamp Thing and Godzilla!
