What A Wonderful World

A song you may have heard gives a look at why our planet is worth protecting.

You've probably heard this song 1,000 times. However, when it's mixed with these images, it adds a layer of context you may not have thought about.

"I see trees of green, red roses too. I see them bloom for me and you. And think to myself, 'What a wonderful world.'"

This is the beginning of one of the most recognizable songs in American history. Originally sung by Louis Armstrong, it was written to offer a positive and hopeful look into the future. It talks about babies being born into our world and all the world has to offer them. It offers simple, relatable images of the human experience and the world we live in.

This version is performed by the great David Attenborough, and the absolutely gorgeous shots of nature it features really brings out the theme of this classic song.
