The Antarctic includes all of the land and sea territories from the South Pole to the Antarctic Circle at about 66° south to the Equator. The largest part of this rocky continent lies beneath an ice layer, which partly is more than 3 miles high and holds about 80% of the world’s fresh water reserves and 90% of its ice. Antarctica’s landscapes are almost too beautiful to believe, not only because of the ice and snow, but also due to the unique flora and fauna which can be found on the coast and the islands along the border of the continent. Twelve countries signed the Antarctic Treaty, obligating them to only use the Antarctic territory for tourism and peaceful expeditions rather than exploiting raw materials and claiming sovereignty for the territory.
