If you have not seen A Life on Our Planet, the Netflix Movie which is a Witness Statement and a Vision for the Future by Sir David Attenborough, get around to watching it. If you cant, this magnificent book tells the same if less visual story.
This man is superhuman. A life dedicated to the planet. None before him has ever been as concerned or as important as a human being in our time when it comes to the Planet.
It is a ‘must watch’, time well spent.
He says ‘I am 94. I’ve had an extraordinary life. It’s only now that I appreciate how extraordinary. As a young man, I felt I was out there in the wild, experiencing the untouched natural world – but it was an illusion. The tragedy of our time has been happening all around us, barely noticeable from day to day – the loss of our planet’s wild places, its biodiversity. I have been witness to this decline. A Life on Our Planet is my witness statement, and my vision for the future. It is the story of how we came to make this, our greatest mistake – and how, if we act now, we can yet put it right. We have one final chance to create the perfect home for ourselves and restore the wonderful world we inherited.’
All we need is the will to do so.
A legacy-defining book from Sir David Attenborough, reflecting on his life’s work, the dramatic changes to the planet he has witnessed, and what we can do to make a better future.
A Life on Our Planet: My Witness Statement and a Vision for the Future by Sir David Attenborough is published by Witness Books, and imprint of Penguin Books.
