This short video offers brilliant footage of the absolute beauty of our natural world highlighting the biodiversity of the Earth's plant and animal species, living in a variety of habitats. These powerful images, often shown with time-lapsed photography are accompanied by the voice of English broadcaster and naturalist David Attenborough speaking the timeless lyrics of the Louis Armstrong song "What a Wonderful World."
The video can be used as part of an introduction to courses dealing with the environment. (Environmental Science, Geography, Earth Science) and to support outcomes dealing with the biodiversity, habitat protection, and appreciation of the natural world.
