Our Planet is made up of many complex interconnected habitats. The recent 8 part Netflix series, produced by Silverback Films in conjunction with the Worldwide Fund for Nature and narrated by David Attenborough, is the first major TV series to focus on the unprecedented man-made threat to the environment of our planet and the need to take urgent measures to protect the Earth, its people and its biodiversity. This gallery and its companions, organised by 7 major habitats, illlustrate some of the themes and issues raised in the series and explore their wider ecosystems.
