Dear David Attenborough. Please will you come to my Biodiversity Party as my guest speaker and as the most famous, most kind man on the Planet? I want you to give the main speech at my party for Nature.
Amelia is an Earth Kid and this was her message to the man himself, last week, during World Biodiversity Week. A letter to someone who cares. If there is a man who truly loves Nature, it must be David Attenborough. A man who throws his heart and soul into wildlife conservation.
A Special Biodiversity Ambassador
“I love David Attenborough because he is very smart and I love his voice. He explains things very nicely and clearly,” says Amelia. She chose to invite this famous conservationist to her Biodiversity Party to celebrate International Biological Diversity Day on 22 May.
”I will invite a group of my friends who will have to use make-up or face paint to show which Ocean animal they are coming as,”said Amelia. She researched her guest speaker, David Attenborough.
He was born in 1926 in London and is known as Sir David Frederick Attenborough. He is a renowned naturalist, celebrated for his exceptional educational films and series about Nature’s diversity and innate wisdom.
Attenborough presented Blue Planet II , broadcast in 2017. It is said that some 14 million Brits alone watched this series! A documentary that has been widely acclaimed for its passionate dedication to all creatures on Earth. Attenborough also narrated Our Planet, an eight-part documentary series, for Netflix in 2019.
He was recently quoted as saying: “As a young man, I felt I was out there in the wild, experiencing the untouched natural world – but it was an illusion. The tragedy of our time has been happening all around us, barely noticeable from day to day: the loss of our planet’s wild places, its biodiversity. I have been a witness to this decline… if we act now, we can yet put it right.”
Amelia agrees! Her message to all her party guests would be that the earth is dying. “We need to help our planet as much as we can before it’s too late. We need to stop polluting because all of our litter ends up in our oceans and our animals die.”
My Ocean Biodiversity Party
She added that the theme of her party would be the ocean. “There will be ocean-themed snacks and decorations. We will have meat including fish, fish cakes, mussels – and if someone doesn’t eat meat, there will be sushi, etc”.
My Ocean Party will be in my garden. There will be a fire pit and some lights on the trees. There will be a table for snacks and drinks and there will be speakers to play some music. The party will start at 4pm through to 8:30pm. It will be on a Saturday, some of my friends would maybe sleep over.
Did you know that in the past 7 years, David Attenborough has collected 32 honorary degrees from British universities, more than any other person? Wow! No wonder he has been called “the great communicator, the peerless educator” and “the greatest broadcaster of our time.”
Amelia recognises his goodness and his intelligence. She loves watching his wildlife films such as The Truth About Climate Change.
Do take a look at David Attenborough’s achievements. Then take a look within and see how committed your own heart is to saving our Nature on Earth!
