Ask Sir David Attenborough has connection with the new documentary titled “David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet”, where the celebrated naturalist reflects upon both the defining moments of his lifetime and the devastating changes he has seen.

George, Charlotte and Louis ask Sir David Attenborough the following questions:

  • Prince George: “Hello David Attenborough, what animal do you think will become extinct next?”

  • Sir David: “Let’s hope there won’t be any. There are lots of things we can do when animals are in danger of extinction. We can protect them. About 40 years ago I was with some mountain gorillas in the centre of Africa. Mountain gorillas were then very, very rare – only two hundred and fifty of them left.  We showed pictures of them on television around the world and people thought how terrible it would be if these became extinct. So they subscribed lots of money and lots of people came to help and now, there are over a thousand of them. So you can save an animal if you want to and put your mind to it.  People around the world are doing that because animals are so precious. Let’s hope there won’t be any more that’ll go extinct.”

  • Princess Charlotte: “Hello David Attenborough, I like spiders, do you like spiders too?”

  • Sir David Attenborough: “I love spiders, I’m so glad you like them! I think they’re wonderful things. Why is it that people are so frightened of them? I think it’s because they’ve actually got eight legs, which are much more than us.  If you’ve got eight legs you  can move in any direction so you can never be sure which way that spider’s going to go. So people don’t like them and they don’t like those hairy legs either.  But spiders are so clever. Have you ever tried to watch one build its web? That is extraordinary.  How does it make this circular web like that attached to trees on either side or bits of vegetation. How do they do it? Try and watch and see how they do it. It’s marvellous!”
  • Prince Louis: “What animal do you like?”

  • Sir David: “I think I like monkeys best because they’re such fun! They can jump all over the place and they don’t bite. Some do but if you’re careful they don’t. They’re so funny and I like them a lot. Mind you, you can’t have monkeys sitting around the home because that’s not where they live. They live out in the forest.  So what can you have at home that you like? What would you choose – a puppy or kitten? It’s a very difficult question…I think I’d go for a puppy.”

Sir David Attenborough also answered questions from famous fans as David Beckham, Billie Eilish, Maisie Williams, Dame Judi Dench, among others.
