With Sir David Attenborough in the northern rangelands of Kenya ‘with butterflies and warriors’

“I’ve always felt that Sir David Attenborough is part of my family, an uncle maybe, who traveled the World bringing stories of other Worlds to us. He’d talk to us through that magic window, presenting us with all manner of marvelous creatures seemingly known only to him.

Many years, and a lifetime later, I found myself sitting in a Land Rover listening to that voice of reason; now I understand far more of the world than I did then. The world has changed immeasurably, but the man remains constant, a bright light that we should all follow.

It’s clear, if we do not lead by example, and therefore as a result our children are not taught that it’s not our God given right to take what we want, then what hope for the myriad of creatures who inhabitant this planet alongside us?
