It’s been nearly three months since wildlife conservation in the UK was told ‘it wasn’t really working.’ If I had a pound for every time I’ve read the depressing statistic, in the ‘State of Nature’ report, that “60 per cent of Britain’s wildlife is in decline, with 32 per cent dramatically so” I’d probably have enough money to resolve all of our country’s biodiversity declines at once.
Where are the young naturalists these days? Their scarcity has become increasingly apparent in recent years, and so worrying that the National Trust published a paper focused entirely on the issue, and was discussed in grave concern by both Sir David Attenborough and Chris Packham.
Sir David Attenborough continues to expand his incredible repertoire with his latest project, ‘The Penguin King 3D’, a dramatic tale of the incredible life lead by a male King Penguin on the island of South Georgia. I spoke with him ahead of the DVD release to discuss the new dimensions the documentary adds to the world of wildlife film-making.
