Arctic Wildlife Portfolio
We know full well that there are many other animals in the Arctic! If we've missed your favorite, drop us a line... but don't say penguins. You?ll have to travel to Antarctica to see those!
We hope to add to this portfolio with new sections including Native perspectives as well as sections on fish, insects and a set of lesson plans for educators. If you would like to submit lesson plans please let us know.

Discovering Antartica
http://www.discoveringantarctica.org.uk/
This site is operated by the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) in partnership with the British Antarctic Survey and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office
Scientists working here have made many discoveries from studying Antarctica’s land and atmosphere, and from clues buried beneath the ice. These discoveries also reveal signs of changes in the future that could affect us all.
Take a journey through this site to discover Antarctica for yourself. Each section features activities, images, video clips and fact sheets, to help you learn about this distant, frozen wilderness.

Did you realize that if you use rainfall as a measure, Antarctica is by definition a desert? How in the world can a place virtually covered with ice be considered a desert?
