A Life On Our Planet by David Attenborough: My Witness Statement and a Vision for the Future

Join us as we discuss David Attenborough’s book, A Life On Our Planet, for this month’s interactive book club. In his book, the award-winning broadcaster and natural historian sends an urgent message of warning regarding humanity’s impact on nature, and relays his hopes for a better future. Friends of China Camp naturalist Harold Hirsch will lead our online group discussion.

 

Excerpt from Goodreads.com:

I am 94. I’ve had an extraordinary life. It’s only now that I appreciate how extraordinary.

As a young man, I felt I was out there in the wild, experiencing the untouched natural world – but it was an illusion. The tragedy of our time has been happening all around us, barely noticeable from day to day – the loss of our planet’s wild places, its biodiversity.

I have been witness to this decline. A Life on Our Planet is my witness statement, and my vision for the future. It is the story of how we came to make this, our greatest mistake – and how, if we act now, we can yet put it right.

We have one final chance to create the perfect home for ourselves and restore the wonderful world we inherited.

All we need is the will to do so.

-David Attenborough
