UK’s favourite wildlife presenter Sir David Attenborough was awarded an honorary degree yesterday – the 32nd he has received from UK universities in his distinguished career.
The TV legend, 87, who had emergency heart surgery last month, received the tribute at Queen’s University, Belfast, for his services to science and broadcasting.
Sir David, famous for programmes such as A Life On Earth and The Living Planet, said: “My work has been devoted to documenting the natural world, and to explaining its importance to humanity and its vulnerability. I am greatly honoured that Queen’s University should have endorsed that message.”
