You might not have heard of his name, but if you are an avid viewer of nature documentaries on Discovery Channel, National Geographic and the BBC, you will be familiar with his face and voice. Sir David Frederick Attenborough has produced, hosted and narrated more than a hundred documentaries and programmes throughout his six-decade long career as a natural historian and broadcaster. He is regarded as Britain’s best known natural history filmmaker, creating several landmark BBC series such as the 10 Life series and 3 Planet series.
However, not many know about his contributions to the conservation movement. He has spoken out and advocated for numerous issues that affect the health of our environment, such as over-population and global warming, as well as contributed to the cause of many charities.
Thus, this blog aims to highlight Sir David’s achievements as a renowned naturalist, broadcaster and conservationist.
