Call of the Wild is a brand-new podcast launched by WWF (Worldwide Fund for Nature) to highlight the need for us to act now if we are to make a difference in the fight to save our planet.
In each episode, host and WWF ambassador, Cel Spellman, meets a familiar face from the worlds of sport or entertainment and teams up with a top wildlife expert to talk about what we can do to help nature restore itself.
Scientists predict we may have as little as eight years left to reverse the climate crisis and repair our relationship with the natural world. Through youth-led environmental movements and 2020 forcing us all to stop and reconnect with nature, there is hope that we can turn things around in time.
Cel’s first guest is writer and naturalist Sir David Attenborough who talks about how nature’s extraordinary ability to regenerate gives him hope, how by destroying nature we’re destroying ourselves, and why in his opinion we’ve become disconnected from nature.
Sir David also discusses how children having an interest in the natural world is often lost with age, what we should do to restore our relationship with the natural world, and offers memorable moment from his career before giving valued advice to young people.
