Description:
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.

I want everyone to read this book, especially those in power (Boris Johnson, Andrew Griffith...) who clearly need the wake-up call that this book gives. But we can all do our bit too. The book isn't all doom and gloom; human ingenuity is amazing - we can still turn this thing around, if we want to.
