Sir David Attenborough, the internationally renowned naturalist and broadcaster once said: “An understanding of the natural world and what’s in it is a source of not only a great curiosity but great fulfilment.” His most recent series, Blue Planet 2 and Planet Earth 2, have highlighted the stark reality that our planet, this giver of joy, is in more danger than ever before. From plastics poisoning marine life to destroying our birds’ natural habitats with over-foresting - the natural world around us might never recover unless industries, governments and individuals are willing to act.
