Sir David Attenborough Says Humans Have 'Overrun The World'

Sir David Attenborough has never held back when it came to educating people about the world around us. Even if the truth was bitter, the legendary environmentalist would always be up front with the facts.

Even at the tender age of 93, the documentary filmmaker has criticised the world for its overconsumption.

In a new trailer for his documentary, titled David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet, Sir Davey has warned that the earth is getting close to the point of no return.

The naturalist says straight into the camera: "I've had the most extraordinary life. Human beings have overrun the world. We're replacing the wild with the tame.

He said the way humans are living on this planet are 'sending it into a decline' and if we don't change our act now, we can expect some serious consequences.

"We need to learn how to work with nature rather than against it, and I'm going to tell you how," he added.

Produced by award-winning wildlife film-makers Silverback Films and global environmental organisation WWF, the movie will chronicle Sir David's extraordinary life, focusing on 'the man who has seen more of the natural world than any other'.

WWF's executive producer for the film, Colin Butfield, said audiences know Sir David well from his many decades in front of the camera, but this documentary will give you an insight into who he really is.

"For decades, David has brought the natural world to the homes of audiences worldwide, but there has never been a more significant moment for him to share his own story and reflections," Colin said.

"This film coincides with a monumental year for environmental action as world leaders make critical decisions on nature and climate. It sends a powerful message from the most inspiring and celebrated naturalist of our time."

The film will first get released in a bunch of countries, including the UK, the Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Australia and New Zealand, before being chucked onto Netflix for everyone to see.
