David Attenborough Documentary Promotes Plant Based Eating To Save The Planet

Nature Documentary Legend David Attenborough Encourages Us To Go Plant Based To Save The Planet

In his new documentary, David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet, the 93 year old details the urgent need to reduce our meat consumption at this crucial time in the planet's history. In his 94 years, David Attenborough has visited every continent on the globe, exploring the wild places of our planet and documenting the living world in all its variety and wonder. Now, for the first time he reflects upon both the defining moments of his lifetime as a naturalist and the devastating changes he has seen

Attenborough encourages views to make 4 key goals for the environment: a switch to renewable energy, restoration of the ocean, preserving the wildlife we currently have, and finally, a move to a more plant-based diet. Attenborough says reducing meat consumption will allow us to reduce deforestation, reduce our demand on the world's fresh water supply and allow us to feed the world's population using less land by growing plants instead of raising livestock.


Helping The Climate With Diet

"We must change our diet. The planet can’t support billions of meat-eaters. If we had a mostly plant-based diet we could increase the yield of the land. We have an urgent need for free land... Nature is our biggest ally. The true tragedy of our time is still unfolding – the loss of biodiversity. The living world is our unique marvel. The natural world is fading."

“The world is not as wild as it was. We have completely destroyed it.” But Sir David believes: “If we act now, we can put it right. We must restore biodiversity...We must rewild the world. And rewilding the world is easier than you think. A century from now our planet could be a wild place again."

David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet will premier in Theatres on September 28th & will be released on Netflix later in the year
