The Antarctic continent is located in the South Pole of our Planet. Its geography, climate and biological conditions provide a unique enviroment.

Slide 6: 

Antarctica has the lowest temperatures in our planet reaching minus 158 degrees Farenheit with winds of 187.5 Miles per hour. Containing 90% of the planet’s ice it’s the major reserve of fresh water on Earth.

Slide 12: 

About 99% of Antarctica is covered with ice at an average thickness of 8,200 feet reaching in some places as deep as 15,669 feet.

Slide 17: 

The Antarctic Continent functions as one of Earth’s “refrigerators” regulating the oceanic currents and the world’s climate.

Slide 22: 

In spite of the severe weather Antarctica has rich animal life amazingly well adapted to the harsh conditions.

Slide 27: 

The arrival of the first tourists in the 50’s was a main cause of enviromental concern. Strict rules and regulations were created to protect the ecology and the enviroment from the visitors such as creating restricted zones , mantain a safe distance from the wild life, not feeding or touching the animals, and rigid control of waste disposal.

Slide 33:
