Like every April 22, during World Earth Day, every human being has the duty to pay tribute to the home where they live. No matter how small the detail, this exercise has the purpose of appreciating what we have and raising awareness about the importance of taking care of it day after day. Our planet is unique; with untamed oceans, exotic landscapes, and a natural habitat where millions of wild species coexist. How can we not love the Earth?

For this 2022, and as usual, National Geographic will surprise us again with a new documentary that will surely leave us with mixed feelings due to the magnificence of its beauty: "Explorer: The Last Tepui". The production will take us deep into the Amazon jungle together with American climbers Alex Honnold and Mark Synnott, who together with their team will take biologist Bruce Means (79 years old) to the top of a tepui almost 3,000 meters tall. 

How many things will they find along the way? In the first instance they will have to climb a cliff that exceeds 300 meters in height, and then travel hundreds of kilometers of jungle terrain in search of species unknown to modern science. Without a doubt, this documentary will be a luxurious journey that will show us how small we are in such a huge world. There will be no better way to celebrate World Earth Day than by watching this production on Disney+.
