A Life on Our Planet

Added by: Joost Raessens

A Life on Our Planet: My Witness Statement and a Vision for the Future is a 2020 book by documentarian David Attenborough and director-producer Jonnie Hughes. It follows Attenborough’s career as a presenter and natural historian, along with the decline in wildlife and rising carbon emissions during the period. Attenborough warns of the effects that climate change and biodiversity loss will have in the near future, and offers action which can be taken to prevent natural disaster. This companion book to the film David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet was mostly positively received by critics (book review of Leon Vlieger).
