“It seems to me…

“It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.” – David Attenborough

Sir David Attenborough and myself at the Hope4Apes lecture, London 2010.

Sir Attenborough was a massive inspiration to my younger self and along with my mother (with whom I used to sit and watch the Life series), he instilled a real passion in me for nature and the Earth. I had the pleasure of meeting him at a Hope4Apes lecture in 2010, the only time I’ve ever been truly starstruck. Although he signed my copy of his Life of Mammals book, one of my biggest regrets is not asking him a question at the time… any question!
