Sir David Attenborough

"With a world almost 50% urbanised, communication with the natural world is maintained by talented artists who convey not just the appearance of the natural world but something special about life; life which we have and which their subjects have."

Sir David Attenborough opened the Society of Wildlife's 50th Annual Exhibition at Mall Galleries. Introduced by the SWLA President, Harriet Mead, Sir David Attenborough discusses how communication with the natural world is maintained by talented artists.
