Wonderful narrative on a grim timeline
5 December 2019 | by dannynguyen-44000See all my reviews

Terra, as a documentary, gives a well-written take on the effects of humans on the animal population and planet as a whole. It does this by starting with a history of animal life on Earth, allowing for the viewer to become more attached to these species of animals. It then transitions into the human impact on certain populations such as rhinos and elephants as well as how these practices are harming the environment. "Animals are now products for humans." This quote summarizes this documentary on how humans are taking advantage of animals. Terra provides a somewhat unbiased take on human impact, showcasing it as the need of animals versus the need of humans. It also covers many topics past that of animals such as genetic modifications, although somewhat briefly near the end. Overall, this documentary serves as a great way to become aware of the issues our planet faces due to our own actions.
