The whole kit and kaboodle, camera crews, the in-the-field ecologists and conservations who are protecting these fragile eco-systems and helping us to
understand them, as well as documenting those most at risk. The work of the BBC Natural History Unit underpins and
provides essential public
dissemination for a whole network of academics and scientists whose work would otherwise be marginalised or unknown.
Hence long live Attenborough, there are few people with his power, influence and first-hand experience who are willing and able to talk about
wide-spread, continuing environmental degredation, keeping the subject at the forefront of BBC programming, ensuring that we know enough to be able to
care. The government certainly doesn't want to talk about it, and now with Brexit, there is going to be less support and definately less money for
environmental and biodiversity projects and studies in the UK, as well as a more lax attitude towards abusers and polluters of the environment.
