Join intrepid Antarctic scientists on a quest to understand the ice continent’s profound transformation – and to predict the future as humans drive dramatic change. Welcome to the lost prehistoric world of Gondwana. Welcome to Antarctica. Recommended for children over 7 years old. Restricted to ages 3 and up. Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
