Sir David Attenborough will voice a new Netflix nature documentary.

The 92-year-old naturalist will front eight-part series "Our Planet", which will air on the streaming service from April 5, 2019, and will explore some of the planet's most precious species and fragile habitats.

David said: ""Our Planet" will take viewers on a spectacular journey of discovery showcasing the beauty and fragility of our natural world.

"Today we have become the greatest threat to the health of our home but there's still time for us to address the challenges we've created, if we act now.

"We need the world to pay attention. "Our Planet" brings together some of the world's best filmmakers and conservationists and I'm delighted to help bring this important story to millions of people worldwide."

Netflix have teamed up with Silverback Films - whose director Alastair Fothergill was the creator of "Planet Earth" and "Blue Planet" series - as well as WWF, the world's leading conservation organisation.

Alastair added: ""Our Planet" is our most ambitious endeavour to date, we hope it will inspire and delight hundreds of millions of people across the world so they can understand our planet, and the environmental threat it faces, as never before.

"The crew have ventured to all corners of the globe to capture breath-taking natural history sequences and using the latest filming technology to bring these never-filmed-before moments into people's homes.

"By launching on Netflix at the same time all over the world, this series will enable people to connect to and understand the shared responsibility we all have. We are genuinely all in this together."
