Antarctica, the world’s highest, driest, windiest and coldest continent. There are no people permanently living there, except for a ´lousy´ 5,000 scientists and researchers based there. The ocean surrounding the continent support masses of the world’s sealife including 15 species of whale and dolphin, and five species of penguin. This massive frozen landmass around the South Pole, is fragile and vulnerable to the worst effects of climate change and fishing.
