TL;DR Turns out saving the plant might be the way to get a million followers in under 5 hours; who knew?

David Attenborough is a 94-year-old scientist known for his documentary series “Life in Earth” from 1979. The scientist only needed 4 hours 44 minutes to reach a million followers on Instagram, which is 31 minutes less than it took the previous record holder, Friends star Jennifer Aniston.

Attenborough is a significant climate change and environmental issue activist. His first post is a video explaining that he is taking on Instagram as a new form of communication to explain what to do about the ice caps melting and the other climate-related issues plaguing the earth. Since then, he has been posting small videos explaining what is happening in the world and giving tips on changing it. Bravo, Mr. Attenborough!
