The Advertiser - - NEWS -

SIR David At­ten­bor­ough has warned that hu­mans have be­come the “great­est threat” to the health of our planet.

The vet­eran pre­sen­ter pleaded with peo­ple to “pay at­ten­tion” while there is “still time” to save the nat­u­ral world.

Speak­ing at WWF’s State of the Planet Ad­dress yes­ter­day, the BBC stal­wart, 92, pic­tured, warned: “To­day we have be­come the great­est threat to the health of our home, but there’s still time for us to ad­dress the chal­lenges we’ve cre­ated, if we act now. We need the world to pay at­ten­tion.

“Our Planet brings to­gether some of the world’s best film­mak­ers and con­ser­va­tion­ists, and I’m de­lighted to help bring this im­por­tant story to mil­lions of peo­ple world­wide.”

Sir David, who has worked with the BBC for more than 60 years, cam­paigned for the world to cut back on plas­tic use in Blue Planet.
