Named ‘Our Planet’, the series was created in collaboration with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), and will be dealing with shedding light on the conditions of endangered species.
“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,” Attenborough said during a WWF event in London.
“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,” he continued.
