Voiced by Sir David Attenborough, the eight-part series from Silverback Films and in collaboration with WWF will be premiered on Netflix in April 2019. Featuring some of the world’s rarest creatures and previously unseen parts of the Earth, the series will focus on the breadth of diversity in habitats around the world; from the remote Arctic wilderness and mysterious deep oceans, to the vast landscapes of Africa and diverse jungles of South America.

Revealing the most amazing sights on Earth, alongside stories of the ways humans are affecting the world’s ecosystems, this book is at the forefront of a global conversation as we work together to protect and preserve our planet.

Our Planet will be a companion to the series, featuring stunning photographic images and graphics alongside information on animal behaviour and environmental change we've previously never seen before. It will be published in hardback and Ebook.

Commenting on this exciting partnership between on-screen and book, Susanna Wadeson, Transworld Publishing Director and Head of Non-Fiction said:

‘The scale of this project – its ambition, the breath-taking footage and of course the critically important message is awe-inspiring. I am so proud that the Our Planet book both represents the series and goes beyond it, expanding on remarkable stories and bringing a depth of information that is impossible on screen. It is also the most beautiful book I have ever worked on.’

    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.

    Revealing the most amazing sights on Earth in unprecedented ways, alongside stories of the ways humans are affecting the world’s ecosystems—from the wildebeest migrations in Africa to the penguin colonies of Antarctica—this book captures in one concise narrative a fundamental message:

    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 . . .
