At 94, Sir David Attenborough has been exploring and documenting the natural world for over seventy years. His work has been seen and treasured by millions, over several generations – there simply aren’t many figures with more credibility, trust and public affection. He has led a remarkable life, and it has coincided with a period of unprecedented change in the natural world, a shift he has witnessed first-hand as no other living human has.

A Life on Our Planet is a personal, powerful summary of Sir David’s lifetime learnings, his urgent report on the future that lies ahead if we continue as we are, and his plan for how we can avoid that future. It’s a book he’s wanted to write for many years, and it couldn’t be a more important and urgent message. It’s a book the world needs right now more than ever.

This book is Sir David's first fully-authored book in nearly twenty years – this is his legacy project – and will coincide with the global release of a Netflix documentary film of the same title, commissioned by the World Wildlife Fund. A Life on Our Planet will also serve as the launch title of a new imprint at Ebury UK dedicated to natural history, ecology and the environment. This imprint will be a platform for a new generation of conservationists, literary writers, explorers, scientists, and campaigners who help us ‘see the world, and make it better’.
