Happy Birthday Sir David Attenborough
Today, May 8th, is Sir David Attenborough’s birthday. Sir David Attenborough has enjoyed the best part of seventy years as a broadcaster, narrator and television presenter. His energy and enthusiasm for the natural world shows no sign of deteriorating despite him being just six years short of his centenary. Over recent years, the veteran broadcaster has become an active campaigner raising awareness about climate change, global warming and the impact of our species on the planet. He remains as busy as ever, with the BBC producing a new five-part television series narrated by Sir David, highlighting how natural forces such as ocean currents, seismic activity, sunshine and volcanoes contribute to maintaining a sustainable natural world. A source close to Everything Dinosaur has stated that the series is entitled “A Perfect Planet”.

The television programmes will also highlight how some animals such as snub-nosed monkeys, wolves and bears are having to adapt as the world around them changes. Birdlife from the Galapagos islands including vampire finches will also feature in the series.
Commenting on the significance of these programmes, Sir David stated that:
“To preserve our perfect planet we must ensure we become a force for good”.
The fifth and final episode will look at how our species has impacted upon the environment and the billions of other organisms that share our world.
Sir David added:
“Our planet is one in a billion, a world teeming with life. But now, a new dominant force is changing the face of Earth: humans”.
