Sir David Attenborough Has Officially Joined Instagram

Sir David Attenborough Has Officially Joined Instagram

Good news, everyone! Sir David Attenborough has officially joined Instagram - here's his first post:

Alright so technically the page is managed by filmmakers working for the 94-year-old - because if he's anything like my grandparents he'll still be rolling with a Nokia, answering incoming calls (without being able to hang up) and regularly pocket dialling outgoing ones.

As well as uploading a video, Sir David's page has also treated us to a story. It's an introduction to the two blokes behind the account.

They are Colin Butfield and Jonnie Hughes - two of the producers for Attenborough's new film A Life On Our Planet. They wrote: "Expect us and others to share our experiences making the film and working with David, alongside messages from the man himself."

In the space of 10 minutes, the number of followers had already jumped from 210,000 to nearly 250,000, which probably gives you a good idea at just how popular the account is going to be.

In the first video, Attenborough introduces himself (highly unnecessary). He says: "I've been appearing on radio and television for the past 60 years but this is my first time on Instagram.

"I'm making this move and exploring this new way of communication to me because as we all know, the world is in trouble.

"Continents are on fire, glaciers are melting, coral reefs are dying, fish are disappearing from our oceans - the list goes on and on.

Earlier this month, Attenborough issued a warning about our planet 'facing a crisis' after experts said one million species are now under the threat of extinction.

He urged people to take action now for a 'better future' with an hour-long documentary, Extinction: The Facts, which explores the devastating effects human action has had on the natural world.

The film shows us horrific scenes of destruction, including a sequence in which monkeys leap from trees and into a river to escape a fire. In another, a koala limps across a road, searching for shelter as its forest home is engulfed in flames.

Discussing the show, he said: "Over the course of my life I've encountered some of the world's most remarkable species of animals.

"Only now do I realise just how lucky I've been - many of these wonders seem set to disappear forever."
