Frozen Planet

4 The Love Of Animals

We loved seeing penguins, whales, polar bears, and wolves. We loved it when the penguins jumped out of the water, and right onto a camera man! We were glued to the TV when Discovery Chanel was airing Frozen Planet, and we have been even more enthralled now that we have the entire collection on DVD (they also have it in Blu-Ray). We have loved seeing places that few people ever get to see, and learning about the interesting wildlife that lives there.

The summer issue had a good article about walruses. Surprisingly, they are overlooked in discussions of Arctic species threatened by global warming.
