The man who many refer to simply as “the voice” of nature documentaries has released his 50-greatest moments online.

Sir David Attenborough, who announced a quasi-retirement from the nature doc scene last year, has gone through more than 30 years of footage to present the 50 he consider the best. “The natural world is the greatest source of excitement of visual beauty and intellectual interest of so much that makes life worth living. “And that’s why I got involved in wildlife film-making in the first place,” Sir David told the BBC.

The scenes include a snuggle with mountain gorillas, flying in zero gravity, a special on global warming, and a visit with the world’s largest flower.

“It has always been my hope that through filmmaking I can bring the wonder of the natural world into people’s sitting rooms, inspire people to find out more and to care about the world we share,” said Sir David. To check out the full collection of moments, please visit BBC Wildlife Finder here.
