Symphony for Our World

This Earth Day (April 22), Nat Geo WILD is airing a special commercial-free musical event, Symphony for Our World. It’s a beautiful hour-long special that has zero narration, and pairs breathtaking wildlife footage with original music created by rock band X Ambassadors + Hans Zimmer’s Bleeding Fingers Music. It airs Sunday the 22nd at 8/7 Central time.

It’s breathtakingly beautiful, not just in images but the music pulls you through as we visit the 5 places unique to our earth. We start in the sea, with underwater creatures that will capture your imagination, and then move on towards the shore, land, mountains, and eventually, the sky. There are animals you may never have seen before, and sights that are hard to believe are real.

You can even see the symphony in person in certain venues around the world! An inaugural performance will be held at the Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall on Earth Day, April 22. For performance dates and ticket information, visit natgeoevents.com/symphony. I can only imagine how beautiful the music would be performed live!

Another way that you can participate is by joining the conversation on social media. Nat Geo WILD is partnering with the National Geographic Photo Ark for this Earth Day event. Founded by National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore, the Photo Ark aims to document every species currently living in the world’s zoos and wildlife sanctuaries, inspire action through education, and help save wildlife by supporting on-the-ground conservation efforts. Share your selfies on social media with the hashtag #SaveTogether.

You can learn more at PhotoArk.org, there are many ways to help.
