This is totally different than migrating whales coming up to someone swimming on the beach.
He did things in Antartica that are against the laws. What about the guy who might have spent the past ten years of his life in Antartica researching these animals from a distance to observe natural behaviours, following the rules, and now Steve has come by sliding down the hill with penguins and swims with the whales there? I think he should have to follow the laws like anyone else. Especially in fragile enviroments like Antartica.
