  • A Life On Our Planet


In his 94 years, Sir David Attenborough has visited every continent in the world, bringing the wonders of nature into our homes and hearts. Now, in the most personal work of his life, A Life On Our Planet, he chronicles our influence on nature and shares his vision of how we must re-wild the planet if we are to save it and ourselves.

Described as his witness statement, A Life on Our Planet is both a documentary and a powerful book that gives us an honest and urgent glimpse into the world that we are at risk of leaving for future generations. Sir Attenborough has written a poetic and passionate ode to the brief, gloriously balanced era of the Holocene before we tipped the scales. As he puts it, we have arrived at “a series of one way doors” and now must choose which ones to walk through together.
