About the book: 
With a foreword by Sir David Attenborough, breathtakingly beautiful still photography, specially commissioned maps and graphics, and compelling text expanding on the remarkable TV stories and giving the reader a depth of information that is impossible on screen, this companion to the groundbreaking NETFLIX series presents a whole new view of the place we call home.
 
Featuring some of the world's rarest creatures and previously unseen parts of the Earth—from deep oceans to remote forests to ice caps—Our Planet takes nature-lovers deep into the science of our natural world.

What we do in the next twenty years will determine the future of not just the natural world but humanity itself.
 
If we don't act now to protect and preserve our planet, the beauty we're lucky enough to witness on these pages will have disappeared...
