Sir David Attenborough

Octogenerian, humanitarian, documentarian, and all around good guy David Attenborough turns 89 today. It’s Mother’s Day this weekend, and no one has brought more attention to our Mother Earth than Sir David.

I recently had the good fortune of seeing Sir David when he was last on our shores. As you would expect, he is an amazing man, but he’s also incredibly down to earth – a ‘proper lad’. And at his age, he is a shining example that we too can do wonderful things right into our twilight years.

Why not take a look at his latest project?

Or enjoy some of David’s favourite moments.
