SPOTLIGHT Hats off to our legendary eco-hero SIR DAVID ATTENBOROUGH The astonishing and surprising feats of our conservation king! PHOTOGRAPHY: SHUTTERSTOCK, PIXABAY, UNSPLASH H He has 32 honorary degrees By January 2013, Attenborough had collected 32 honorary degrees, more than anyone else. H He brought the world televised snooker In 1966, as controller of BBC Two, Sir David introduced televised snooker to the world. H He is one of the most travelled men in history For the 1998 series Life of Birds alone, he travelled 256,000 miles by air. He’s also hit every continent in the world, culminating in 2009 when he reached the North Pole at the incredible age of 83. H He had other careers in mind If he hadn’t become a broadcaster and explorer, there was a time he might have tried his hand at teaching. H There are at least 15 plants and animals named after him H If he could, he would be a sloth If he could come back as anything, it would be the laziest creature on earth. H He’s on the cover artwork of a Beatles album In 2012, Sir David was among British cultural icons selected by artist Sir Peter Blake to appear in a new version of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover – celebrating the influential people of his life. H He has a boat named after him In 2016, a British polar research ship was named RRS Sir David Attenborough in his honour. H Sir David is the only person to have won a BAFTA in black and white, colour, HD and 3D SPRI NG 19 ★ schoolnotices.co.uk 55
