Every year the world loses an area the size of Bri­tain to a layer of con­crete. the 2016 Bri­tish na­ture doc­u­men­tary se­ries pro­duced by the BBC as a se­quel to Plan­etEarth, ended this week with a mes­sage calling on view­ers to pon­der the pos­si­bil­ity of peace­ful co­ex­is­tence of hu­mans and other species. The se­ries was a thrilling and fas­ci­nat­ing re­minder about why we should trea­sure Mother Na­ture. The pre­sen­ter Sir David At­ten­bor­ough set view­ers think­ing about these is­sues. Was it not pos­si­ble to build cities which were more in har­mony with na­ture? How – and whether – we de­cide to in­vite the wildlife in is up to us. But it is surely our re­spon­si­bil­ity to do ev­ery­thing in our power to cre­ate a world that pro­vides a home, not just for us, but for all life on earth. Thus, we present the an­i­mal of the year, and let us cher­ish the world’s wildlife.
