From the ends of the earth, I will cry unto Thee!- Psalm 61: 2a

Antarctica is a little larger than Europe.

It is 4,000 miles across at its widest point.

It is the HIGHEST continent.

It's the DRIEST continent. Antarctica is a desert.

It's the COLDEST continent, averaging minus 76 degress in the winter!

Once the thermometer registered minus 128.6 degrees!

90 % of all the ice in the world in on Antarctica.

If all the ice on Antarctica melted, the oceans would rise by 230 feet!

No Beagles!Dogs are not allowed on Antarctica, not even sled dogs. It is feared that the seal population might catch distemper.
