Antarctica Day 2014 - Flags and Books

Antarctica is an amazing place, filled with fascinating forms of marine life, mountains of ice, and vast polar deserts. It is also a place of peace and scientific Discovery because of the Antarctic Treaty which was ratified on December, 1st 1959. Continuing in this spirit of international cooperation, APECS, in conjunction with Our Spaces and Polar Educators International (PEI), once again encouraged educators and their students from around the world to express their own knowledge, curiosity and amazement about this incredible frozen continent in the form of Antarctica Flags and Books.
