New Survival Trends Report

In the last couple of years it's become a popular concept. Going out alone to survive in the wilderness using only your wits and the tools you have with you. It seems that as we get more labour saving devices and our lives become easier, the idea of going back to nature and fending for ourselves becomes more appealing. Possibly we just romanticise the idea because of shows we watch or maybe there is a natural born hunter in all of us trying to get out.

There are a variety of TV programmes that glorify the idea of bush craft featuring bushcraft specialists like Bear Grylls and Ray Mears. These shows are intended to entertain and to a small degree educate. However these men are specialists and have had extensive training, whether it is military or other. Is surviving in the wilderness actually possible for any extended period of time?

In the channel 4 program alone in the wild, Ed Wardle a Scottish outdoor adventurer was dropped into the Canadian wilderness with the intention of showing he could survive there for 3 months. Ed was left in the Yukon armed with only a camera, a rifle and a fishing rod to aid his survival. Prior to the show Ed has made a variety of documentaries in some of the world's most hostile environments including the North Pole and the peak of Mount Everest. He also received training from medical and survival experts. However it was important to note that he was not a survival expert himself.
