To celebrate Earth Day, National Geographic’s “Secrets of the Whales” is being released on Disney+ on April 22nd.

This 4-part series plunges viewers deep within the epicenter of whale culture to experience the extraordinary communication skills and intricate social structures of five different whale species: orcas, humpbacks, belugas, narwhals and sperm whales.

WDC is excited to give away 15 tickets to the exclusive virtual pre-screening on April 18th so you can be one of the first ones to see this epic series! Academy Award-winning filmmaker and conservationist James Cameron teams up with National Geographic Photographer Brian Skerry to bring the lives of these whales to our screens accompanied by narration from Sigourney Weaver. You won't need a Disney+ subscription to watch this screening.

No purchase necessary to enter and one entry per person. Fill out the entry below and we will randomly choose 15 winners at 10 am EDT on Friday, April 16th.

This contest has ended.

    Please let us know how we can watch it if we don’t win and don’t have the Disney channel. So excited whales are getting some media attention.
