Summary
As well as celebrating the beauty and diversity of the wildlife of the north and south polar regions, Spirit of the Polar Regions also delves deeper by describing their geographical nature, the history of human exploration, the indigenous native cultures that have grown up around them, and their scientific importance, particularly the manner in which they influence the climate on Earth. The book also highlights how the shrinking of the polar icecaps has become a very significant indicator of climate change alerting us to the potential dangers of global warming
