Antarctica is a tough place for any critter to make its living. The continent is one of the coldest, driest, and windiest places on Earth. But nestled among the moss and the rocks of the Antarctica Peninsula lives a tough little fly with amazing adaptations. We invite students, teachers, community members, and science enthusiasts to join us as we travel to Palmer Station, Antarctica to learn more about how Belgica antarctica survives harsh polar conditions.
