Quotes of David Attenborough
- Over the last
fifty years, one way or another, I seem to have visited a rainforest,
a tropical rainforest, pretty well every year.
- In fact, over
50% of species of living organisms live in the rainforest alone.
- Youve already
heard, and heard eloquently, how important the rainforest is in the
creation of the climate of the world.
- But if you destroy
the rainforest, you are destroying 50% of the species of living creatures
on this earth and we do not even know now what they are.
- I number myself
among them, who think that we actually do not have the moral right to
destroy this extraordinary, wonderful manifestation of the natural world
that is a result of centuries, millennia of evolution.
- We used not to

no excuses; none whatsoever.
- We live in one
world. We, and all the other nations round the world, are
- What happens in
the rainforest effects us here and what we do here affects what happens
in the rainforest. We cannot opt out of this situation.
- I regret to say
that I also believe, indeed know, that we are at the very last tick
of the clock. We have got to take this opportunity, and if we do not
do something to help those in those forests, we are betraying
generations that come after us.
- It is an inspiring
recognition that protection of the natural world, which I have spent
so much of my life documenting, should be the concern of all humanity.
- I have got the
best job going and to go around the world and see all those marvellous
things is more than anyone could wish for.
