In a trailer for a new film due out at cinema’s on 16 April Sir David Attenborough, 93, has warned that “human beings have overrun the world.”
The documentary titled David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet takes a look back on Sir David’s life defining moments and the environmental devastations that’s taken place.
The veteran broadcaster said in the trailer, “I’ve had the most extraordinary life.
“It is only now that I appreciate how extraordinary.
“The living world is a unique and spectacular marvel, yet the way we humans live on earth is sending it into a decline.
“Human beings have overrun the world. We’re replacing the wild with the tame.
“This film is my witness statement and my vision of the future.”
He added, “Our planet is headed for disaster.
“We need to learn how to work with nature rather than against it and I’m going to tell you how.”
Colin Butfielf, of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) executive producer for the film said, “For decades, David has brought the natural world to the homes of audiences worldwide, but there has never been a more significant moment for him to share his own story and reflections.
“This film coincides with a monumental year for environmental action as world leaders make critical decisions on nature and climate.
“It sends a powerful message from the most inspiring and celebrated naturalist of our time.”
