Planet Earth : Ice Worlds

I hope you watched this last night. If not, it's available to view again tonight (Monday)
Excellent images of extreme environments, and the struggle to survive, particularly the Polar bear sequence, and the little huddle of shivering baby penguins lost in the blizzard...
There is an excellent WEBSITE to accompany the series which includes a FLASH EARTH, which you can rotate and then zoom in to see video clips.
You'll need a recent version of Flash on your PC to use this application.
For more on the animal and plant species which live in extreme environments, visit ARKIVE.
