The new BBC series Wild Isles, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, will be the first time many of us have seen our incredible wildlife and wild spaces up close – and we can’t let it be the last.
The five-part TV series is a unique collaboration between WWF, the RSPB, and The Open University, and will capture the beautiful and diverse landscapes of our home as never seen before. It will be broadcast on BBC One and available on iPlayer in the UK and Ireland.
“All of us at the RSPB have felt so privileged to contribute alongside our fellow co-producers WWF and The Open University. Wild Isles is a once-in-a-generation celebration of UK wildlife, but it’s also a stark warning of how much we have to lose.
Our experts were among those who provided guiding science and advice, as well as offering our amazing reserves to film everything from dragonflies to golden eagles. We can’t wait to see what action is sparked by this milestone series - nature is in crisis, but we know that together we can save it.”
Beccy Speight, CEO of RSPB
“WWF has been honoured to play a key role in creating the Wild Isles series, along with our co-producers the RSPB and The Open University. Along with other generous sources, our experts provided science and expertise behind the themes and species covered.
We know nature in the UK is in crisis and we hope this series will highlight that we all have a role to play in protecting and restoring it, now and for generations to come. We can bring our world back to life.”
Tanya Steele, Chief Executive of WWF
