Sir David Attenborough is the Godfather of natural history, having introduced generations to the boundless wonders of the world. Animal Planet honours his invaluable work and influence by dedicating an entire month to this cultural icon with Attenborough Month every weeknight in October.

Throughout his illustrious career the globetrotting naturalist has surveyed almost every aspect of life on Earth. Attenborough Month delves into some of his most compelling and captivating stories.

From The Penguin King which explores an extraordinary, sub-Antarctic island to celebrate the destiny of a very special King Penguin, a daring mission to save rare giraffes in Giraffes - Africa's Gentle Giants and a journey into the Earth's largest living structure in David Attenborough's Great Barrier Reef (airing in Australia only).

This colossal month also sets out to uncover the truth about the mysterious pterosaurs in Flying Monsters, journeys back in time and across the globe to discover how the earliest animals developed on our planet in First Life, reveal the hidden world and natural history of frogs like never before in Fabulous Frogs (airing in Australia only), unravels the secret and seemingly scandalous world of the cuckoo in Natural World: Cuckoo, take a closer look at Mexico’s very own ‘Bat Man’ in The Bat Man of Mexico, and more.
