Richmond Park - National Nature Reserve, presented by Sir David Attenborough, is an award-winning film by conservation charity the Friends of Richmond Park. Filmed by experienced wildlife film makers (including a leading cameraman from Blue Planet II). The film won first prize in the 2018 Charity Film Awards in the 'Documentary/Long Form' category. Sir David explains in the film: “Richmond Park is not just a local park it's London's own National Nature Reserve with thousands of species of flora and fauna; but with 5.5 million visitors each year, the Park is under immense pressure. However, as visitors we can all help to protect it through simple actions so that it will remain a wonderful place for the enjoyment of future generations”.

  • My father Ted Lord worked in Richmond park from the end of the 2nd word war until he retired..Around 37 years . He was awarded a medal for the design and layout of the plantations which can still be seen to this day. Richmond park was our childhood playground. I have so many stories but would take hours to tell.

  • Wildlife is closer to home, than we think. National Parks are the conservation of specific types of nature - the flora and fauna in a specific area. It often involves a helping hand from humans. Nature untouched by humans, left to it's own devices is very rare. The area around Chernobyl is one example. That one caused by accident by humans....

  • Whenever I visit London I visit Richmond Park to photograph the wildlife, particularly the deer. Like other UK deer parks, there is nowhere here in Australia where such an opportunity exists. I use long lenses, move about carefully and keep a respectful distance so as not to disturb the animals. Unfortunately not all visitors show such respect, I suspect because they have little knowledge of wildlife. Richmond Park is an international treasure where people can observe and learn. Thank you David for this film about a place which is very dear to my heart.

I strongly recommend this national nature reserve to anyone who is into birds or any species of wildlife.

  • Not to make in mandatory, but if each visitor was to donate £1 on visits, imagine how much money could be used to buy and maintain other pieces of land within the UK? I'd hate to take the right away from the poorest to visit these places, but if those that could afford it were offered a scheme, surely it would help protect places against the threat of development and lack of care in the UK? We pay for all manner of activities, I'd like to see us put some value on our green spaces.

  • It’s funny that ancient hunting actually contributes to preserving of wildlife

    Ethan SkerryEthan SkerryÁri síðan
    • Thats a tricky thing to balance really. Ancient hunting caused the extinction of natural land predators so species such as deer now get "too" numerous and end up damaging developing woodlands. This shifts the entire eco-system which will help some species but undoubtedly have a negative impact on others. Victorian era hunters also introduced lots of non-native species for the purpose of hunting them and this has also had a knock on effect and through disease and competition caused declines (and probably extinctions) of native wildlife.

  • There are a number of prominent signs, around the park in big red letters, 'Dangerous dogs must not be let off leads between February and May as they may present Danger to young deer' And yet, owners still do so. The signs underneath the lettering have a warning - '£300 penalty may be payable for letting dogs run free of lead between these months'

    • I believe the rangers have the right to shoot dogs that are bothering or attacking deer

      Neil TappendenNeil Tappenden8 mánuðum síðan
    • In fact all dogs must be kept on leads during the deer birthing season of May and June and the rutting season of September to early November. Dogs must also be kept on leads around Pen Ponds and the Skylark nesting areas, as indicated by numerous signs.
