I got my results back from my Frozen Planet course and I passed! :-D really pleased and a big thank you to all you followers! This blog has really helped me with my course and I’m definitely going to continue with it. The polar regions are immensely beautiful and I intend to educate as many people as I can about how important they are to our planet.
On an extra note, hideous statistics have been unveiled of how many harp seals are brutally slaughtered each year in Canada. Newfoundland’s tax money contributed last year to the death of 70,000 seals! If you want to help, there is link on harpseals.org below to write to Canadian senators to plea for a stop to this cruelty.
Hey everyone and awesome followers. Very sorry I haven’t posted anything for a while! I’ve been really busy moving house, working (I won’t bore you any longer).
But on the plus side, as I’ve been doing more of my Frozen Planet course I’ve got loads of interesting new facts and info on the polar regions to share with you. So hopefully you’ll not only like the new pictures and info on my blog but learn something from them too!
In the meantime, here is a lovely picture of an Arctic Wolf :) x
If you haven’t already heard, a huge lake called ‘Lake Vostok’ in Antarctica has been covered in a sheet of ice since the ice age. Nobody has ventured down into the waters of this lake, and now there is a race on to see which country can break the ice first and uncover the potential wonders that lie beneath. Scientists believe there may be brand new microbial lifeforms down there.
Russian scientists apparently have won the race, reporting that they have broken the ice first! No confirmation has been made as of yet (as far as I know).
See the bbc article to find out more! Very exciting stuff!
