Like many other inconvenienced travelers stuck in foreign locales due to Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano erupting, naturalist Sir David Attenborough and his Frozen Planet crew recently became stranded. What made their situation a bit different is that they were filming in the freezing Arctic Circle.

Thankfully, Attenborough, who is well-known for his awesome nature series narration, is today doing well holed up in a luxury hotel in Norway. However, for a short time, the BBC were deeply concerned the whole thing was about to turn deadly.

From the Daily Mail,

Sir David had taken a private plane to an isolated area of the Arctic to film scenes of melting ice caps. But following Wednesday’s eruption, the pilot had been refused permission to fly until the cloud of ash cleared. BBC bosses were concerned Mr Attenborough and his crew would run out of supplies of food and water if the crisis continued.

An insider said: ‘David is an extremely seasoned adventurer and has come up against plenty of adversity in his time. But he and the crew are concerned about the current situation because they are stranded in such a cold and inhospitable place.’

Before things went to hell, Attenborough did have the opportunity to fulfill one boyhood dream. At the age of 83, he reached the North Pole just six weeks after reaching the South.

Exploitation for art is no worse than exploitation for dinner

It always seems to come back to a confused juror deciding when animal use is justified.

Humane Society Serves Pork to Save Dogs…WTF?!

All animals matter morally, equally.
