One of the greatest naturalists interviewed by environmental journalist Barack Obama

Renowned British naturalist Sir David Attenborough has been interviewed by a very special person for his birthday: the President of the United States of America.

The President of the United States, Barack Obama, has always been an admirer of the well-known British naturalist Sir David Attenborough, one of the first journalists to make documentaries on the Earth’s beauties for the BBC. President Obama decided to invite him at the White House for his 89th birthday, and to interview him.


“I have been a huge admirer of your work for a very long time,” Obama told Attenborough, recalling naturalist’s 60-year career that has the credit of having grown kids’ passion for nature and the environment.


Thanks to him, young people are now more conscious than adults as fr the environment, Obama sais. For example, the President’s daughters, Malia and Sasha, now see climate change as one of the main threat to face.
