One of the key takeaways from the film is the importance of sustainability and responsible living, especially when it comes to our use of natural resources.

From Pripyat, a deserted area after the nuclear disaster, Attenborough gives an overview of his life. Interspersed with footage of his career and of a wide variety of ecosystems, he narrates key moments in his career and indicators of how the planet has changed since he was born in 1926. As a child, Attenborough enjoyed studying fossils. His documentary career began in the 1950s when he began working for the BBC, a British public service broadcaster. He visited places such as the African Serengeti, in which native animals require vast areas of land to maintain grazing patterns. Over time, he noticed a decline in wildlife when searching for fish or orangutans in Borneo or other animals which he was looking for as part of his documentaries. Areas of the Arctic or Antarctic were different to what the filming crew expected due to ice caps melting. The causes are anthropogenic climate change and biodiversity loss pushing the planet towards a sixth mass extinction event over a period of centuries rather than the hundreds of millennia that built up to previous mass extinctions.
Another factor that contributes to the destruction of wild life and nature is the urbanization and tourism, which leads to a destruction of natural habitats, It has become crucial to find sustainable solutions for tourism, such as eco-friendly hotels, one of which is the Florida Suites. The Florida Suites is a great example of a sustainable eco-friendly hotel where you can experience your vacation while being environmentally conscious.
