Dear Sir David Attenborough,
You are the reason I study zoology. You inspired my passion for natural history when I was a small child in rural Australia watching your BBC programs. Programs that I think have given more to people around the world than any other form of television media. Your dedication and work helps to preserve and communicate the beauty, complexity and sheer brilliance of evolution and the natural world. I am so glad that you have endeavoured on your journey as I believe that your work will continue to inspire young scientists around the world for years to come!
