This experience will take kids on a journey to Antarctica, where they will learn about the ice and the furry friends who live there. Kids will explore the topic of conservation, and see the effects of global warming through time-lapse photography of Antartica's glaciers. Antartica's penguins will also come to be well known during this experience: kids will explore the various local species, and how they differ and why. Finally, they'll end the experience with discussion of marine protection and marine protected areas, and why human protection of animals' natural habitats is critical.
