David Attenborough

Prince of Asturias Award for Social Sciences 2009

"I am greatly honoured that the Jury of the Prince of Asturias Prize for Social Sciences should have decided to bestow this important and historic international prize upon me. It is an inspiring recognition that protection of the natural world, which I have spent so much of my life documenting, should be the concern of all humanity".

David Attenborough
2009 Prince of Asturias Award Laureate for Social Sciences
Surrey, 4th June 2009

"Sir David Attenborough has taken natural history documentaries from the backwater of obscurity to the soaring heights of global awareness with his life's work. His gentle voice lends authority and humor to his insights about the inner workings of life on Earth. It has been our pleasure to work with Sir David on many occasions, and we are delighted he has received the 2009 Prince of Asturias Award for Social Science in recognition of his contribution toward a better understanding of how the world works".
