The Explorers is a streaming service offering high-quality nature content, including video and photos from users. Users will see videos of animals, landmarks, and natural wonders from around the world. Most videos are short (about 1 minute), but premium subscribers can see longer documentaries.

Users can pay to see the premium films, but the subscription is free for users who post content (photo or video) in the “Earth inventory.”

Ten percent of any subscription fees is donated to The Explorers Foundation, which supports biodiversity.
