Diverse species of wildlife inhabit the Earth’s two polar regions which are our coldest and driest areas. Emperor penguins huddle together on the ice, incubating eggs in winters that bring temperatures as low as negative 48 degrees Celsius. Similarly, the tiny Arctic tern is the only terrestrial resident of both polar regions, flying 80,000 kilometers every year round-trip to catch the Antarctic summer before returning to its Arctic breeding grounds.
