David Attenborough 'optimistic' about our planet's future

Words by Abi Scaife

Sir David Attenborough has said he's is still optimistic about the future of our planet.

That’s a relief.

It is - but it doesn’t mean we should stop doing our bit to help the planet.

In his new BBC documentary series Wild Isles, David said that, though it's easy to feel overwhelmed by the problems the planet faces, we have the solutions and can make a difference.

So, what's the new campaign?

David is an ambassador for WWF - a conservation charity which has recently launched a joint campaign with RSPB and the National Trust.

The Save Our Wild Isles campaign is calling for an immediate halt to the destruction of UK nature and urgent action for its recovery.

To get involved with the campaign, you can take a look at the Save Our Wild Isles website. They have plenty of ways you can help out - at home, at work, at school and in your communities.

Alternatively, you can give directly to, or volunteer with, the charities involved in the campaign by visiting the WWF, RSPB or National Trust websites.
