So, is Attenborough posting the videos himself?

Attenborough, in the message, gave the viewers a positive message and said that the solution to all these problems are also available and that is why he has made a decision to tackle this new way of communication.

As well as videos of the celebrated broadcaster, followers can expect to see exclusive clips from behind-the-scenes filming his new documentary, as well as posts in collaboration with The World Wildlife Fund for Nature.

Sir David Attenborough has joined Instagram at the age of 94, to warn people that "the world is in trouble". Or, as the caption states, "saving our planet is now a communications challenge".

"But we know that to do about it, and that's why I'm tackling this new way, for me, of communication". The video message he shared, highlighting the immediate need to conserve nature, went viral in no time and clocked in over 10.5 million views and nearly 40,000 comments already.

The previous record holder for this title was Friends star Jennifer Aniston, who joined the social media app on October 15 2019 and gained 1 million followers in five hours and 16 minutes.

Google reportedly plans to ban post-election day political ads
A spokeswoman for Google said the ban would be in place for a minimum of a week, but date of lifting the ban is not decided. Tech platforms are rushing to rewrite policies to ensure that campaign ads do not mislead voters.

The veteran broadcaster joined the social media platform for a really important reason, too.

David Attenborough is the younger brother of the late Richard Attenborough, who you probably would recognize from "Jurassic Park" and the remake of "Miracle on 34th Street". "The solutions already exist - David shares them in this film as part of his vision for the future - but it's now critical, for our own survival, that we embrace them".
