Barack Obama Is Narrating and Hosting a Netflix National Parks Docuseries

The former U.S. President is also producing alongside Michelle Obama.

Barack Obama is narrating and hosting Netflix‘s upcoming nature docuseries Our Great National Parks.

According to the official synopsis, “each episode tells the story of a national park through the lives of its wildest residents — both big and exceptionally small — and explores our changing relationship with wilderness. Our Great National Parks beckons us to get out and explore, create new ways for these wild places to thrive, and vigorously preserve them for future generations to come.”

The forthcoming series was first announced in February 2021 as a new slate of Netflix projects that the former U.S. president and Michelle Obama are producing via their Higher Ground Productions company. However, at the time, there was no knowledge the former head of state would be narrating and hosting.

Obama gives a glimpse of his narration in the trailer for Our Great National Parks. “A fish that can walk. Surfing hippos that want to catch the waves. Species found nowhere else on earth,” he says. “When humanity started to protect these wild places, we did not realize how important they would become: They’re a haven for endangered species, and a hotbed for scientific research.”

Our Great National Parks premieres on Netflix on April 13. Watch the trailer above.
