Attenborough the best

As Douglas Mackenzie writes (Letters, October 4) David Attenborough is the world’s most experienced and valued naturalist.

I urge everyone to see his latest documentary A Life on our Planet on Netflix or at movie theatres. It is a witness statement of his outrage at what humans have done and what will happen to our children and grandchildren if we do not act wisely.

But he also has optimism if we do things right: stabilise population growth; stop fossil fuel use; re-wild the planet; and decrease animal protein consumption.

He concludes: “nature is our biggest ally; if we take care of nature, nature will take care of us; it’s about saving ourselves; with or without us, nature will survive”.
