Antarctica - The Continent of Wonder
Antarctica is a continent of wonder. Located at the South Pole, not only is it the coldest place on Earth, it is also the windiest, iciest, and the driest place in the world. No one can argue that Antarctica, trapped in an ice sheet of 3000 meters high, has one of the harshest natural environments imaginable. Yet, we must not forget that it is also a continent wrapped in human warmth. It is a land of international peace and cooperation, where countries around the world share the land solely for its scientific research. Still, what we know about the continent is just the beginning of a great big mystery. As the only continent in the world that hasn't been touched greatly or destroyed by mankind, Antarctica hides some of the most exciting possibilities for exploration and the revelation of amazing secrets. The website was created in hope that the young people of today would get to know more about the continent of ice and cherish its importance for the future of our world.
