Sir David said: “We are at a unique stage in our history. Never before have we had such an awareness of what we are doing to the planet and never before have we had the power to do something about that. “Surely we have a responsibility to care for our Blue Planet. The future of humanity and indeed all life on Earth, now depends on us.” Viewers have said they do not want to let the broadcaster down. One person wrote on Twitter: “This wonderful series has been an eye opener to the beauty in the seas but also the devastating effect humans are having on it. Our abuse of plastic, its disposal and fishing needs to stop now.” “Sir David just said the future of all life on Earth depends on humans. Let’s not let him down,” wrote another person. “Well said Mr Attenborough. Proving that climate change and the future of our warming oceans and sea life is ultimately down to us,” tweeted another.
