Sir David Attenborough is back on our screens for the BBC’s latest must-see series celebrating nature across Britain and Ireland. WWF, Vodafone’s partner, has co-produced the series along with the RSPB and the Open University.
Wild Isles, which is rumoured to be one of Sir David’s last series on location, launched on 12 March and focuses exclusively on wildlife in the UK. It features fabulous natural spectacles, from battling butterflies to hunting orcas. WWF provided science and conservation expertise across the series.
As well as showcasing the beauty and diversity of nature on these islands, the programme makers have highlighted the grave threat posed to UK wildlife through habitat loss and climate change.
Jack Lundie, Director of Campaigns at WWF-UK, says: “We know how powerful documentaries can be in driving positive change – much like Blue Planet II raised awareness of the impact of plastics on our oceans and inspired action to tackle it.
“We’re now in a critical decade for saving nature and tackling the climate crisis – but in order to see the change needed from governments, businesses and all parts of society, we need the support of the public.”
