Oh, Sir David and his antics. 

He's pulled out heart strings in all the right places and informed us that all of the turtles from that harrowing scene in this week's Planet Earth 2 finale were safely places back into the sea, thanks to the incredible crew who spent weeks filming them. 

The baby turtles struggled to find their new home of the sea, as the guide they use to follow is usually the moon - but thanks to electric lights now donning every city in the world - they get confused and often end up trampled on our roads. 

However, the angels at Planet Earth 2 worked with the Barbados Sea Turtle Project, to rescue the struggling turtles and release them back into the sea during the hatching season.

Hurray for animal lovers!
