The Antarctic is closer than you think! – Eco Centre ‘Zapovedniks’

Centre “Zapovedniks” and the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition are glad to introduce the new lesson Discovering Antarctica Together.

A new continent – Antarctica – was discovered two hundred years ago. Over the years, Antarctica attracted the attention of researchers and explorers from different countries, in particular, because of its unsolved scientific questions and a vast number of unexplored places.

You have an opportunity to join them and to learn more about southernmost part of our planet during our new lesson – Discovering Antarctica together.
